The 68 year old Duarte passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning after a battle with cancer. She was buried on Sunday afternoon as according to Muslim rites.
Mabe adds that details of the service will be announced in due course.
“We’ve already begun speaking to our structures, especially here in Gauteng. The Provincial Secretary comrade TK Nciza, has already indicated that they are securing UJ. There is already a planned mobilisation programme. We are most likely to have a briefing on Tuesday, to now outline the format of the programme.” says Mabe.
