award to Burnham Date: Wed, 24 Apr 2013 08:55:55 -0400 From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: H-NET List for African History and Culture <H-AFRICA@H-NET.MSU.EDU> To add to the ironies upon ironies see the following Oliver Tambo Lecture by former President Thabo Mbeki from the South African government's presidential website. Walter Rodney is quoted about half way down. The content of the quotation is itself notable (and now ironic). This is all too sad. http://www.thepresidency.gov.za/pebble.asp?relid=2650 Stephen Rockel Department of Historical and Cultural Studies University of Toronto Scarborough email@example.com Quoting teferi abate <teferiabate@MAIL.H-NET.MSU.EDU>: > Subject: DISCUSSION: Walter Rodney assassination vs. S.African award > to Burnham > Date: Tue, 23 Apr 2013 22:56:25 -0400 > From: Peter Limb <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Reply-To: email@example.com > To: h-africa h-africa <firstname.lastname@example.org> > > > From: Peter Limb > > SABC has now taken up the story: it is a very long URL so you may > have to copy and paste > > http://www.sabc.co.za/news/a/cf7bff004f5d288985238f1e5d06aea0/Decision-to-confer-OT-Award-to-Forbes-Burnham-sparks-controversy-20132304 > > -- > > > > > -- Stephen J.
