This book by Mohamed Enver Surty, the Deputy Minister of Basic Education, entitled In Pursuit of Dignity which is a collection of vignettes” relate to “his professional, social, constitutional, parliamentary and executive activism

“Even though I have known comrade Enver for more than 24 years, I found his vignettes both absorbing and interesting. I am acutely aware of his quiet and unobtrusive but critical interventions in the negotiations on the Bill of Rights. I have enjoyed the stories that cumulatively make a fascinating narrative of how cadres from different walks of life have given unstintingly of themselves to create a better tomorrow…”

Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the Republic of South Africa

“In Pursuit of Dignity” is a compelling and thoughtful collection of short stories that flows imperceptibly into a strong tale of a stalwart of our long struggle for freedom. From the narration, I admire his role as an activist attorney, his ready interaction with and spread out to surrounding communities and their struggles and his ultimate entry into the liberation movement.
Dikgang Moseneke, former Deputy Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa

“A riveting and compelling read. This is vintage Surty: committed, transparent, humble, witty and intelligent. This book is an insight into South Africa – today, yesterday and the future. There is so much to learn here: politics, constitutional law, family and social relations. A book from an insightful, truly amazing writer.”

Naledi Pandor, International Relations and Cooperation in the Government of the Republic of South Africa
