THE South African Communist Party (SACP) in Kokstad celebrated Freedom Day by honouring the life of the late SACP general secretary, Chris Hani, at Shayamoya Hall on Wednesday.

The communist party held a memorial lecture attended by provincial Executive committee member Nosilivere Magadla, members of South African Democratic Teachers Union, South African National Civic Organisation (SANCO) and the Kokstad community.

SACP co-ordinator in Kokstad, Vuyiswa Qhakaza said Hani was a leader who played a huge role in the struggle against apartheid.

Six SACP branches from Kokstad attended the lecture.

“Hani was the anti-apartheid leader that we should remember when we celebrate Freedom Day. By remembering Hani we are also reminding ourselves about where we come from in South Africa.

“It is important for South Africans to think about people who contributed in the struggle against apartheid and honour their lives.”

Qhakaza told communist party members to make sure that the party is united.

“Former apartheid leaders, including former president Tata Nelson Mandela won’t smile if we fight each other. We need to keep our organisation alive and adhere to the vision of making this country a better place.”
