The ANC in the Western Cape will be unveiling the tombstone of the late Mcebisi Tshandu in Worcester on Saturday.

Tshandu is a former leader of the Young Christian Students, (YCS) and subsequently became a leader of the Western Cape Students Congress, an affiliate of the United Democratic Front, before the unbanning of the ANC in 1990.

He became part of the provisional structures to re-establish the ANC Youth League and he later led the Congress of South African Student, COSAS, in the Western Cape.

He became a leader of the ANC Youth League in the Western Cape and later became the Acting Provincial Secretary of the organisation.

“Comrade Tshandu was a grounded political educator and an organiser par excellence,” said ANC provincial spokesperson Jabu Mfusi.

He passed away in 2008 and his remains were laid to rest in Zwelethemba in the Boland Region, where he was born.

“As the ANC we shall be meeting for the tombstone unveiling of this cadre of our movement this coming Saturday the 10 December 2016 at 09:00 at Zwelethemba multi Purpose Centre,” added Mfusi.

He said the keynote speaker for this august event will be the former President of the ANC Youth League, a member of the ANC NEC and current Minister of Home Affairs, Malusi Gigaba.
