RUSTENBURG - Deputy Basic Education Minister Enver Surty received tons of praise at the launch of his book detailing life in the struggle against Apartheid.
Surty, 65, launched his book, titled In Pursuit of Dignity, at the Rustenburg Civic Centre in the North West on Tuesday night.
"The title of the book got me thinking. And the contents of the book also got me thinking. In a soft way, the book humanises and pays homage to our struggle heroes. This book helps to tell a story of the history of his country," said Basic Education Angie Motshekga.
Motshekga went on to describe Surty, the longest serving deputy minister, as one of a few great people with the finest brains, adding that it was important for the nation to experience and interact with his mind.
Surty said the book was not intended to see the light of day, and that it was friends and colleagues who coerced him into turning his stories into published form.
