Description DM2000062307:GCP:POLITICS:APARTHEID:NOV1959 - Mr Mafekeng Husband Of Mrs Elizabeth Mafekeng - He faces a future without his wife and with 10 children to look after. Mrs Mafekeng, 42 year old mother of 11 children, was the president of the South African Food and Canning Workers Union, until the government ordered her to leave her home and family for the barren part of Vryburg district, without charge, trial or explanation. So a few days after receiving the Union Government's banishment order Elizabeth bade farewell to her husband and 10 chidren and, with two month old Theresa Uhuru clutched to her breast, set off by car with friends for the wilds of ruggedly beautiful Basutoland.(Photograph by Drum Photographer Baileys Archives) see Drum January 1960
