I was in my first job and still remember vividly police chasing students from my office at the top of Adderley St near the Cathedral in St Georges St – the first stirrings of my “political conscience”. Think I wrote about it in my very first manuscript, How a South African “Moegoe” * became “politically aware”

*= “drongo”

I think the students were protesting the death (“suicide”) of Ahmed Timol at John Vorster Square in 1971
