My Father Died For This is a new book by Lukhanyo and Abigail Calata.
Lukhanyo's father Fort Calata was one of the men now known as the Cradock Four, who were murdered by apartheid agents in 1985 when Lukhanyo was a toddler. Fort Calata died along with Matthew Goniwe, Sparrow Mkhonto and Sicelo Mhlauli.
The men were activists and thorns in the side of the apartheid regime. Fort Calata and Mathew Goniwe were teachers.
To date, no one has been prosecuted for his murder.
Joanne Joseph talks to Lukhanyo about the events that lead up to what happened.
Lukhanyo describes how his father was influenced by his grandfather the Reverend James Calata who was a secretary general of the ANC.
He had such a major influence in my father's life and political consciousness. And the township of Lingalile in Cradock was very highly politically concientised.— Lukhanyo Calata, author of My Father Died For This
