Johannesburg - Slain SACP stalwart Chris Hani was a passionate leader who had the deepest love for his people - and his murder was “shattering” to the family.
This is according to Hani’s youngest daughter Lindiwe in a moving tribute to her father on Wednesday.
“He was a very dedicated cadre and true revolutionary. I am extremely proud of him,” she said in an interview with The Star on Wednesday on the 20th commemoration of Hani’s assassination at Thomas Nkobi Memorial Park in Boksburg, Ekurhuleni.
“Twenty years later, we still carry the emotion that is still raw about him. It is a day when we remember that anything is possible and we will carry his memory as long as we live. I will remember him as a liberation of my freedom,” she said.
Lindiwe was flanked by her mother Limpho. She would, however, not be drawn on the current state of politics in the country and the factionalism and infighting within the ANC.
