- 31 May 1981

Conrad Sidego is sympathetic to the individuals boycotting the twentieth year celebration of the South African Republic, because of the political insensitivity towards a majority of South Africans who do not have citizenship in their own country. However, he does strongly request the youth to practice self-discipline during these demonstrations as the recorded causalities at school unrests are long enough.
