In August Gail Mabalane’s husband, Kabelo Mabalane revealed that he had lost his uncle.
“Malome Danny personified what servant leadership meant. To him, it was never about titles but rather about function. I salute Malome and his generation of freedom fighters because of their commitment, it was never conditional, they stayed true to the cause regardless.”
Mabalane said that his uncle’s servant attitude is what has had the most impact in his life and it is an attribute that he strives to emulate.
“Over everything else, his attitude as a servant is what impacted me most about his life and it is an attribute I always strive to emulate.”
He further added that his uncle served as the president of the South African Students Movement which was responsible for the uprising in 1976.
“My uncle, a Robben Island detainee charged with sedition, a parliamentarian in the first democratically elected SA government, served as president of the South African Students Movement which was responsible for the June 1976 uprising. Lala kahle Mkhonto!” He said.
