Hi All. My grandfather, Cameron Mongezi Duna turned 100 on 20 September 2022. He was born and grew up in the tiny village of Bilatye, in the former homeland state of Transkei under the apartheid government. Due to structural racism, he never received much of a formal education, finishing school in standard 5 (now grade 7).

Although uneducated, he is an unsung hero of the struggle for liberation in South Africa. He worked alongside Wycliffe Mlungisi Tsotsi, helping him escape to Maseru, Lesotho in the 1960's (more information on his involvement in the struggle is being collected). Throughout his life, he was a migrant worker, working in both Cape Town and Johannesburg in his younger years. His retirement came when he was working at Auto Bavaria (BMW) Sandton.

He married his late wife and they were blessed with two children, four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Although he is too old to play, he really enjoys it when his great grandchildren visit him often in the village. His favourite activities are to work in the garden, read an old newspaper and have long conversations with his long time friend. He feels truly blessed to have lived such a long life and still be able to support his family. His wisdom is a blessing for the village. He has a very sharp memory so many people like to consult him for guidance.

As a family and his community at large, we wish to honour him and the role he has played in the community and in the country at large, as well as celebrate this incredible milestone of living up to a century. Please help us make this wish come true.

Thank you very much for your kindness.
