The family of late freedom fighter, Solomon Kalushi Mahlangu, has called for the ANC to unite and not let his death along with other freedom fighters be in vain.
Lately the leaders of the ANC have been publicly contradicting agreed-upon decisions.
Some have been vocal in their differences around the former president, Jacob Zuma, issue with the Constitutional Court and State Capture Commission.
As the ANC today commemorates the 42nd anniversary of the day Mahlangu was killed by hanging, family spokesperson Prince George Mahlangu says the infighting within the party is a disgrace.
Mahlangu, better known as Kalushi was tried in November 1977 to the 1st of March 1978, for charges associated with attacks in Goch Street in June 77.
He was therefore charged with two counts of murder and several charges under the Terrorism Act. Mahlangu pleaded not guilty to the charges.
“They must unite and renew the organisation to ensure that all that Kalushi fought for is restored. It is important that as a family continue to preach what we believe would have been Kalushi’s sentiments and we will continue to represent that,” says Mahlangu.
