Chief Luthuli, Goolam Suleman and Edgar Sibusiso Luthuli inside the Suleman family shop, Liberty Stores.

Goolam Suleman was born in 1929. His father, Hajee Suleman Hoosen, owned a shop in Stanger and played a key role in community life there.  Hajee’s non-racial worldview bore a strong influence on his son who later joined the Natal Indian Congress Youth Family.

When Goolam returned to Stanger to work in the family business, which he renamed Liberty Stores, he met E V Mohamed who was a close friend of Luthuli. Liberty Stores, along with Mahomed’s offices, soon became “the Chief’s” base in Stanger and secret ANC meetings were conducted here.

Suleman felt he owed it to the memory of his friend Luthuli “to write down his recollections of the Chief and the role played by so many now forgotten people in the Indian community of Stanger, like E.V. Mahomed, in the life of one of Africa’s greatest sons”. These memories are published by the Luthuli Museum in In the Shadow of Chief Albert Luthuli —?Reflections of Goolam Suleman by Logan Naidoo.
