In this interview, Benjamin Pogrund discusses Apartheid in South Africa and the role of “rebels” - the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and MK. What is the difference between ANC and MK? What role did the ANC play in the struggle of black South Africans? What were the ANC’s main goals? How did the ANC use the “people’s power” to establish its power?
What was the difference between the ANC and MK?
There was a clear split between them. The ANC was, and is, based in the townships. MK was the armed wing of the ANC. The ANC had better contact with the people - the ANC and MK were the people’s power. The ANC had a different ethos than MK, and MK had a different ethos than the ANC. The ANC and MK were also very different in composition.

The short story has been treated with suspicion for a long time now. In the early years of the 20th century, it was the domain of the great masters of the genre: Chekhov, Maupassant, James and others. After the Second World War, the short story lost some of its prestige in the Anglo-American literary scene. It remains marginal in the rest of the world, but it is still one of the most important literary forms. It is used for many diverse purposes: to express the universal human condition; to tell stories about our complex and conflicted society; to draw and explore the imaginative possibilities of the short story form; to give artists the chance to experiment. The short story can be a trigger, a catalyst, a provocation or a mirror, and for all these reasons it can be a great art form. In 2013, the short story reached its zenith in India. We had a bumper crop of brilliant new writers and their stories, and also some amazing, often highly acclaimed translations.
