” Zuma, nitasi bambisa vele, kutsi lendzawo sale isuka kuba kaMasilela, ibe yindzawo letaba yemlandvo. Keteke kutsi, le kwe kutsi, umaku bhalwa umlandvo weANC, nekuphila kweANC kaNgwane, iya fakeka lendzawo. Nalaba betemvelo netekuvakasha, kube nguletinye yeletindzawo.”
Lutfo Dlamini, Minister of Enterprise and Employment, Swaziland, 23 June 2007
” I must thank the parents of the author and those who participated in writing the book. I think it was great that you came to Swaziland to stay here and therefore created a house for the ANC that we utilised and overused. Even with the harassment, Elias showed me the famous (mango) tree. Why was the house never closed down?… It was a useful house, even for the police. It was like a bus (Sibomber) that would travel between Mozambique and Mbabane (in the 1970’s). Siyabonga Magogo!
Jacob Zuma, Deputy President of the ANC, 23 June 2007
“House Number 43 as a place for reconciliation, peace and harmony. UMagogo never cared whether you were a member of the PAC or ANC. Nalabancane bata kwati kutsi bekwentekani ngesikhatsi semzabalaza“
Absalom Themba Dlamini, Prime Minister of Swaziland, 23 June 2007
“Let me thank the Masilela family and uMagogo. You have made us proud!. Your book gives a balanced historical perspective on the role that was played by the Kingdom of eSwatini, in the liberation of South Africa. We have always known that the true picture of the Kingdom’s positive contribution to the liberation of the Republic of South Africa, would one day be brought to the limelight – for all to appreciate; and you have done just that. The Swazi Nation thanks you”
His Majesty, King Mswati III, 23 June 2007
