THE city’s chief whip and ANC
stalwart Truman Magubane will be honoured during South African Library Week this month with a lecture on his life.

Magubane, who spent 15 years ­imprisoned on Robben Island, will have a host of dignitaries speaking about him. The lecture will take place on March 14 at the Bessie Head Library at 5 pm in the auditorium.

The lecture will provide in-depth information about the life and challenges Magubane faced with family, apartheid and imprisonment.

South African Library Week coincides with Human Rights Day and will run from March 11-21.

Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe, KZN Premier Senzo Mchunu and Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa are among the high-ranking speakers at the lecture.

The theme for this year’s library week is #Libraries4lifelonglearning and will reflect on a more holistic view on education from different environments.
