The mother of the late ANC MP Peter Mokaba has died, the Star reported on Tuesday.

According to the newspaper, community and anti-apartheid activist Priscilla Mokaba, 76, died of lung cancer at the Polokwane home of her daughter Mapula on Sunday.

She was one of several political activists jailed in the 1980s. Her son was a former president of the ANC Youth League.

The African National Congress reportedly described her as a distinguished activist who had stood firm against the apartheid regime. President Jacob Zuma reportedly phoned the family to convey his condolences.

At the time of her death, Mokaba was reportedly involved in establishing soccer teams for elderly women and girls, teaching people beadwork, and running a vegetable project.
