Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) veteran and adviser in the Pimville branch, Azariah “Junior” Nkosi, had died after a long illness, the PAC said today.

“He was in and out of hospital since 2005. He suffered from arthritis,” said PAC national spokesperson Lehlohonolo Shale.

Nkosi, 78, died at his home in Pimville over the weekend.
His funeral will be held at the St Peter Claver Hall in Pimville on Saturday.

Nkosi was jailed on Robben Island for 13 years under the apartheid government.

“He was the chairperson for the Pimville branch for 12 years. Before his death, he was an adviser at the local branch.”

Nkosi was born in 1932 and he joined the PAC in 1960.

He leaves behind a wife, Bernadette, two brothers and children.
