DURBAN - Shack dwellers' movement Abahlali baseMjondolo will hold a lecture on Tuesday to commemorate its fallen heroes, it said on Monday evening.
The annual Thuli Ndlovu Memorial Lecture will take place at the Surat Hindu Hall in Durban.
An Abahlali activist, KwaNdengezi branch chairperson and member of Abahlali's national council, Ndlovu was killed in September 2014 by a hitman, on the instructions of ANC councillors Mduduzi Ngcobo and Luvelile Lutsheku. The men were sentenced to life in prison.
In the same month and year, 17-year-old student and Abahlali member Nqobile Nzuza was shot dead by police in Cato Crest.
Abahlali said families of the movement's "fallen heroes" were invited to attend the event, which would be given by Abahlali secretary general, Nomsa Sizani. Sizani's nephew, Samuel Hloele, was shot and killed while being evicted from his shack in June 2017.
