"All that I do, even outside of South Africa, is still with the eye, the heart and the soul of the lands of my birth. I must hear and listen to the cares and joys - gaieties which shoulder all the sufferings, injustices, greeds and hatreds. Through the wealth of gold and other minerals in our country - yet still looking forward into building up a future suitable to the honour of mankind."


Barbara Lindop, Gerard Sekoto (Randburg, SA, 1988), p.241
