Here's The 3 Great Man Who Started The ANC In 1912 During The Apartheid Era...>{Opinion}<

As everyone probably knows by now, the African National Congress is the first political party that was formed by black people in South Africa during restrictive laws of apartheid, the formation of the ANC in 1912 was the beginning of the end for the apartheid government. 

Although the ANC wae found in 1912, it was only after 88 years that it was officially recognized as a country in 1990, the apartheid government didn't allow the formation of any political parties by blacks.

The three great individuals who put their lives on the line to start the movement for liberating blacks, Indians and coloureds are John Langalibalele Dube, Pixley ka Isaka Seme and Sol Plaatje. In 1912 they went against the government laws and launched the African National Congress(ANC). 

Although they aren't media sensations, they deserve all the flowers because without them, none of the democracy we have now right now,would have came.

May their souls Rest In Peace but with all the corruption done by the ANC, they're probably turning in their graves. What do y'all think?? Let's talk in the comments section
