"Naboth Mokgatle was born in 1911 in a tribal village called Phokeng near Rustenburg, Transvaal. His youth alternated between schooling by Lutheran missionaries and spells of lonely duty at outlying cattle posts. Naboth left for Pretoria, partly to improve his financial status, but also to escape the weight of conservative tribal tradition. It was not long before he realised that he had only exchanged a mild form of tyranny for an even more severe one crammed with the trappings of petty apartheid. He became involved with trade union organisation and politics during the short-lived heyday of collaboration between the left-wing whites and the African nationalists. Successive acts of defiance of authority led to his being arrested and imprisoned. In 1954 he fled South Africa without a passport, and lived in London as an exile until his death in 1985.".
