Johannesburg - The widow of the late president of the PAC, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe - Zondeni Veronica Sobukwe - had her discharge from hospital delayed because she could not get her medication on time after a mix-up at the in house chemist.
Mama Sobukwe, 91, has been at the Midland Hospital in Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape for three weeks.
Her son, Dini Sobukwe, said, “the strongest woman I’ve ever known in my life”, was still frail.
In April, Mama Sobukwe, affectionately known as the “Mother of Azania”, was awarded the Order of Luthuli.
Her son, who is also executive director at the Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe Trust (RMST), received the award on her behalf due to her advanced age.
This year also marks the 40th commemoration of the death under banishment of her husband, the founding president of the PAC.
