Abahlali baseMjondolo Press Statement
The First Annual Thuli Ndlovu Memorial Lecture
The First Annual Thuli Ndlovu Memorial Lecture, in honour of our comrade assassinated in KwaNdengezi on the 29th of September last year, was scheduled to take place on the 24th of September 2015.
The lecture was disturbed by the taxi strike that was going on at that time. Only 178 comrades were able to reach the venue on foot. A decision was taken to hold a meeting and to reschedule the lecture for another time.
The First Annual Thuli Ndlovu Memorial Lecture, will now be held on Sunday the 11th of October. At 07h30 the national council of Abahlali, together with the provincial council (which includes all the branch chairpersons in the province) and the KwaNdengezi branch will visit the grave of Thuli Ndlovu and do a short prayer as a sign of respect. At 10h00 the lecture will start at the Hindu Surat Hall in Prince Edward Street in central Durban. We will also light candles to honour all our comrades who have fallen in the struggle for justice, equality and dignity.
