THE mother of Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu, Queen Thomozile Jezangani kaNdwandwe, was a staunch African National Congress member and participated in most of the protests organised by the ANC in Durban during the 1950s.

During the Anglican funeral service on Saturday, the KZN chairperson of the ANC Women’s League, Lungile Gcabashe, said ”Queen Thomo”, as she was affectionately known, participated in the ANCWL campaign to stop African men from drinking sorghum beer in government beerhalls and was also active in organising the 1950s potato boycott by Africans.
