Zenzo Nkobi Photograph Collection

  • ZA SAHA AL3265
  • Fonds
  • 1976 - 1980

The images in this collection are digital surrogates of a substantial portion of a unique and historically significant collection of photographic materials donated to the South African History Archive (SAHA) in October 2007 by former Rivonia Trialist, Mr Denis Goldberg whose late wife, Edelgard, had been married to Zenzo Nkobi and had taken possession and responsibility for these items following his death.

Over 10,000 images were given to SAHA, mostly in plastic sleeves within loose-leaf folders, held in cardboard boxes; with some dates and places handwritten on the sleeves (which do not always correspond to the images inside). The donated materials include images from the book Zimbabwe in the struggle, published in 1978 in East Germany, but generally there was very little identifying data accompanying the materials and it is difficult to discern from the negatives exactly what events are recorded in the collection without further research.

About 5,000 negatives were then selected for scanning from the Zenzo Nkobi materials, based on the scarcity and significance of the content of the images, as derived from labels on materials (where available) and from examining the negatives using a lighting box, where possible. These negatives were then scanned, with funding provided by the British Library Endangered Archives Programme (EAP) in late 2008 and early 2009.

Only the digitised images from those donated are described in this finding aid. At a later stage, further images will be scanned and the remaining materials processed and added to this listing.

Original order of the materials has been retained, with box, file and sheet numbers used to indicate the location of the original materials donated to SAHA, with corresponding references used to label all digital copies. Because only a selection of materials has been scanned and the Edelgard Nkobi-Goldberg materials were subsequently removed, there are resultant gaps in the sequence of digital folder and file names.

Zebediela Citrus Estate, Records

  • ZA HPRA A1724
  • Fonds
  • 1862 - 1974

This collection comprises the records of some of the land companies within the massive Schlesinger organisation, with the focus, through sheer volume, being on Zebediela Citrus Estate.

Numerous problems arose when trying to devise a cataloguing system: on the one hand were the citrus estates themselves and on the other, their financial underpinning of the real estate and investment companies that formed part of the Schlesinger Organisation. This was further complicated by the mergers, purchases and liquidations of the holding companies.

Was one then to organise the material in terms of holding company - African Realty Trust, African Irrigated Land Company and so on - or citrus estate? While Zebediela was obviously the focus of the collection, it could equally have been catalogued as merely one of the larger African Realty Trust concerns.

A compromise was therefore struck between chronological and substantive coherence and commercial accuracy. Thus sections A-C are concerned primarily with Citriculture, and are classified according to estate - Zebediela, Letaba and Nuden respectively. By 1962, Muden, Letaba and Zebediela had all been consolidated Into one company - Consolidated Citrus Estates, and thus form section D.

There is an artificial distinction between Sections A and E - Zebediela and African Realty Trust, respectively; however, in the interests of coherence, this was felt to he justifiable.

Unfortunately, few records remain to document events at Zebediela beyond the early 1960s. Zebediela then fell within Lebowa, having been taken over by the South African Bantu Trust in the mid 1970s. The latter, in turn handed it over to the Bantu Investment Corporation in 1976 for the sum of R1. 2 million.

Other records in this collection document, in bare outline, developments in other land companies owned by the Schlesinger Organisation.

Zapiro TRC Cartoon Collection

  • ZA SAHA AL3129
  • Fonds
  • 1997

All Zapiro’s cartoons are drawn with a very sharp pen. Nonetheless only one of his cartoons has ever been ‘pulled’. A cartoon depicting former President FW de Klerk’s responsibility (as head of the Apartheid State and its security forces) for the atrocities that emanated from the notorious “Vlakplaas”, with De Klerk’s head as the proverbial tip of the iceberg, was ‘pulled’ by The Sowetan, for whom the cartoon was drawn. The newspaper was of the opinion that the cartoon was potentially defamatory. Zapiro had therefore to replace De Klerk’s head with that of Eugene de Kock, the self-confessed commander of “Vlakplaas”. Both cartoons form part of the Collection.

This collection was initially arranged by subject matter. In order to portray the sequence of events during the TRC the cartoons have now been arranged by year.


Zackie Achmat, Jack Lewis and Treatment Action Campaign Political Papers

  • ZA SAHA AL3165
  • Fonds
  • 1980 - 2003

The collection is organized by two major themes: activist work in the 1980s and up to 1998 (when the Treatment Action Campaign was formed); and activist work post-1998, concentrated around the Treatment Action Campaign. The brief biographies of Zackie Achmat and Jack Lewis contained in the introduction of this inventory provide some indication of the work done by each as individuals and as part of a collective.

Often either Jack or Zackie would start a project and then include the other in its ongoing implementation. As a result, the authorship of many documents in this collection cannot be clearly attributed to either Jack Lewis or Zackie Achmat.

The collection comprises of documents (hard copies) stored in archive boxes and electronic documents (stored on the SAHA drive according to file number) as well as audio-visual materials (please see the SAHA archivist for access to these documents). There are also a number of posters in the collection that is stored with the SAHA Poster Collection (AL2446).The SAHA Posterdatabase indicates the cross-referencing of the posters to this collection.

Some materials are restricted access. Restrictions are noted next to the title of the documents. Please see the SAHA archivist should you require access to these documents.
