Sy Scholfield quotes "Across Boundaries: The Journey of a South African Woman Leader" by Mamphela Ramphele (1999), p. 1: "Helen Frantz Hospital in the Bochum district of the northern Transvaal ... It is here that I was born at two o'clock on the afternoon of 28 December 1947, having inconvenienced my mother in no small measure."
