Statues of Oliver Tambo and Fidel Castro Unveiled in South Africa

Pretoria, October 25 (RHC-PL)-- Statues of Oliver Tambo, one of the main founding fathers of South Africa's liberation and constitutional democracy, and the historic leader of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro, were unveiled today in the South African province of Free State. 

The prime minister of that province, Ace Magashule, other personalities of the region and the commercial advisor of the Cuban Embassy in South Africa, Pedro Arteaga, participated in the ceremony. 

South Africans who studied in Cuba, along with collaborators from that Caribbean nation, who give their services in Free State, were also present. 

The ceremony culminated in a cultural event where songs like "Cuba, que linda es Cuba" and the traditional Guantanamera were performed. 

This act coincides with the tributes taking place in South Africa for the centenary of Tambo, promoter of the campaign of civil disobedience that saw a shift in the struggle of the African National Congress against the apartheid regime in the 1940s and tributes to the Cuban leader on the occasion of the first anniversary of his death.
