Remembrance wall for Liliesleaf
Johannesburg - The Liliesleaf Trust announced on Wednesday that a wall of remembrance would be erected in dedication of MK cadres who fought the struggle against apartheid.
"The Liliesleaf Trust has embarked on this momentous project to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the formation of Umkhonto we Sizwe, and the purchase of Liliesleaf which is recognised as the birthplace of MK," the trust said.
It said the wall would be erected in a "tranquil place" on the site and will be a place for people to pay their respects to comrades.
Liliesleaf Farm is situated in Rivonia, north of Johannesburg, and was once the headquarters of MK, the military wing of the ANC and the Congress Alliance.
Today it is a museum where visitors learn about the struggle against apartheid and how MK planned to overthrow the white regime.
Former president Thabo Mbeki set up the Liliesleaf Trust in December 2001 to ensure that Liliesleaf Farm's heritage was protected.
