BOIPATHONG - The brother of missing Mbuyisa Makhubu whose picture made international headlines in 1976, says government has still not assisted in the search for the boy who tried to save Hector Pieterson.
Mbuyisa who appears in the iconic photograph carrying a lifeless Hector Pieterson has been missing since the seventies.
While the country remembers the sacrifices made by the youth of 1976, today Wandile says Youth Day has always been a sad day for his family.
He says government has not been helpful in the search for his missing brother, Mbuyisa.
“All the time when it is this time of the year, it invokes the emotions of wanting him to come, the emotions of anger, the emotions of feeling disserviced by the government because we feel like they are not doing enough.”
Malema says the ANC is too preoccupied with protecting white privilege.
