“He speaks of his country and the welfare of it's people with a passion reminiscent of the Martin Luther King Jr. civil rights movement in America in the 60s. 
“King fought for the liberation of the blacks from the oppression of racism, segregation and inequality that was quite rampant in that era.
“He mobilised his fellow blacks and awakened in them a new consciousness of pride and self-discovery that ultimately gave impetus to the struggle for freedom from all forms of prejudices.
“Needless to say that he got the white supremacists of that generation to listen to what he had to say. And what he had to say ultimately had a significant impact on the outcome of his concerted fight to rid the black American population of the toga of second class citizens.
“King did one more thing. He ensured that African Americans earned the same respect, rights and privileges that their fellow white countrymen and women were accorded.
