Former Zambian president Kenneth Kaunda speaks about his relationship with South Africa in the documentary

A Tribute to the Frontline States

ED (DStv channel 190)

Monday and Thursday, 8pm

Directed and presented by Shaka Sisulu, the grandson of Walter and Albertina Sisulu, award-winning documentary A Tribute tothe Frontline States will be screened on ED tomorrow night.

The documentary could not be shown at a more pertinent time as it focuses on the significance of African states in the struggle for liberation.

It features Thabo Mbeki, Kenneth Kaunda and other illustrious characters of the time.

Sisulu says the doccie is one of a few that recognises the African contribution tothe resistance, as opposed to that of the US or the UK.

Produced by Mandy Jacobson and Barbara King last year,the documentary was shown at the Durban International Film Festival and was screened on SABC2.

There’s no doubt that its upcoming AfriDocs appearance will coincide with new debates in light of the brutal xenophobic attacks that have taken place in South Africa.
