- ZA HPRA AD1719
In 1974 SASO/BPC members were arrested for staging Viva Frelimo rallies at Curries Fountain and at Turfloop University, and charged. They were Saths Cooper, Muntu Myeza, Strini Moodley, Patrick ‘Terror’ Lekota, Nchaupe Mokoape, Pandelani Nefolovhodwe, Nkwenkwe Nkomo, Kaborone Sedibe and Zithulele Cindi. Their trial, officially known as 'State vs Cooper and Eight Others', dragged on for 16 months, after which the accused were found guilty and sentenced to five and six-year terms on Robben Island.
Steve Biko appeared as one of the defence witnesses in the trial in May 1976, and his testimony is included in the court records. The records also include 'The Definition of Black Consciousness'.
