Johannesburg – To commemorate the 24th anniversary of the assassination of Chris Thembisile Hani, the Young Communist League of South Africa (YCLSA) said they would continue with undertaking a frank assessment of some of the most pressing issues facing the country that Hani fought for.

Speaking to African News Agency (ANA) on Monda, National Spokesperson, Molaodi Wa Sekake said: "In this Chris Hani Month, we will use our 'Bua Thursdays' invite community members and identify issues affecting them. We will hold public lectures and seminars to educate people about our fallen heroes".

Sekake said in the midst of the challenges they face, especially the need to overcome poverty, inequality and unemployment, they are constantly faced with tasks to mobilise, organise and educate the entire youth towards a socialist society against all odds.

"In doing this, we seek to combat corruption and the deliberate weakening of the state by reactionary forces and self-centered political elites and instil a sense of service to the people," Sekake said.

"May the soul of the commander of the people’s army rest in peace and his temerity inspire the living soldiers of socialism," said Sekake.
