Long live Octavius Dionte Clark, son of Deputy Chair Ona Zené Yeshitela

To Comrades Deputy Chair Ona Zené Yeshitela and Chairman Omali Yeshitela: It is with great shock and sadness that we learned of the sudden and premature passing away of your son, Octavius Clark. The African People’s Socialist Party extends our deepest, most heartfelt revolutionary love and condolences to you, our leadership.

Octavius was born on January 23, 1977 and passed on August 27, 2021 due to the colonial virus, COVID-19. Everyone who knew him will remember and cherish his unlimited kindness and warm friendship.

Octavius was a very loving and wonderful son to you. To his dearest children that he left behind, he was simply the best dad. This is why it is extremely difficult for anyone to imagine how you feel about the loss of Octavius. Our Party, that spans across the world, is with you in this time of grief and sorrow.

Your uncompromising love for African freedom and unity means that your loss is also our loss too, everywhere we are located and organizing.

Deputy Chair Ona Zéné Yeshitela, your resilience to build a new economic foundation for the African Nation is making us strong in our beliefs to prepare to govern for our own interests, everywhere around the planet. Your leadership constantly makes us strong, now you can lean on us.

With the love of the Comrades who make up the Party across the continents, you will never carry this pain alone, we will always be there to share it with you.

Brother Octavius, like the majority of colonized African people, did not die naturally. His life was stolen from us by the colonizers. With the ever-developing work and capacity of the African People’s Socialist Party, Ocatvius will not die in vain.
The best way to honor the life of Octavius and uphold our leadership is to embrace the responsibility placed upon us, to build and organize, to destroy the forced relationship between oppressor and oppressed nation that binds us together, once and for all.

Our freedom from this system, which is contingent on our willingness to lead, will serve as the greatest testament of our love for Octavius Clark.

To the Chairman and Deputy Chair, we love you and are with you during this time. We lend you our strength, today we are with you! Tomorrow we will be there with you, til’ it’s won.

– Luwezi Kinshasa, African Socialist International (ASI) Secretary General
