Nimrod Sejake

Nimrod Sejake (8 August 1920 – 27 May 2004) was a labor leader in South Africa in the 1950s. He was a leading member of the Congress of South African Trade Unions, initially as secretary of the Iron Steel Workers, and became active in the African National Congress (ANC) in Soweto in the 1950s.

He was one of the defendants during the Treason Trial, on his arrest he shared a cell with Nelson Mandela. For safety reasons he had to seek exile in Ireland.

Later, he became a prominent figure in the Marxist Workers Tendency of the ANC.

While in exile, he was presumed dead by the ANC. In the 1980s he was featured on the front cover of an official history of SACTU, the ANC trade union. At the time, the authors and the ANC mistakenly listed Nimrod as being already dead.

After his return from exile, he continued his adherence to socialist ideas and established a socialist reading groups in his township, Evaton.
