The City of Ekurhuleni has scheduled month-long activities to celebrate the life of anti-apartheid struggle hero Chris Hani, who was assassinated 25 years ago.
Hani was shot and killed outside his home in Dawn Park in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, on the 10th of April 1993.
The City posthumously conferred the Freedom of the City to Hani in 2006 and declared April, the month in which he died, the Chris Hani Month.
Ekurhuleni Mayoral Spokesperson Phakamile Mbengashe says on the 10th of April, the city will convene a wreath laying ceremony, which will be attended by government leaders, ANC leaders, the community and the Hani family at the Thomas Nkobi Memorial Park.
This will be followed by a memorial lecture on Chris Hani’s life and times at the Boksburg Civic Centre on the same day.
The Chris Hani Photographic Exhibition depicting the life of Chris Hani will be opened for public viewing for free at the Springs Art Gallery from April 21 to May 21.
