Very good news. A man who suffered for what he believed and a committed campaigner against racism has been honoured in Poland, receiving the very prestigious Zbigniew Herbert Prize.

Breyten Breytenbach is probably the most eminent living South African writer, certainly the greatest one in the Afrikaans language.

Breytenbach however did return to his homeland in secret to engage in the anti-apartheid struggle, but was discovered and jailed.

Ironic that that should happen so soon after PIS abolished the state council tasked with combating racism.

Living proof that it is possible to meet a nice South African!

80% of South Africans are black. So what are you trying to say?

You're probably way too young to remember the song.

Breyten Breytenbach is even mentioned in it as I recall.

Great thet he's got the Zbigniew Herbert award, given by Herbert's widow.

Yes he's quite a nice South African,
And he's hardly ever killed anyone,
And he's not smelly at all.
That's why we put him prison!
