Xuma was a South African National Congress (ANC)  leader. Xuma was instrumental in getting the UN's attention on Namibia, opposing the incorporation of Namibia into South Africa, by writing a telegram to the UN in January 1946. The telegram had a wide echo in Namibia, South Africa and the world community, sparked similar moves by other organisations, and succeeded in getting the UN General Assembly to reject South Africa's incorporation plan on 14.12.1946. He was married to Amanda Mason Xuma in 1934. Xuma died on 27.01.1962.
