    Struggle icon – Andrew Mlangeni dies at age 95

    Published

    on

    ANC stalwart Andrew Mlangeni has died at the age of 95.

    He was admitted to 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria on Tuesday, following an abdominal complaint.

    Mlangeni spent over two decades on Robben Island after he was convinced at the Rivonia Treason trial in 1964.

    Obviously, he was the last remaining Rivonia Trialist.

    President Cyril Ramaphosa has sent his sincere condolences to the Mlangeni family as well as the friends, comrades and associates of the struggle hero countrywide and internationally.

    “The passing of Andrew Mekete Mlangeni signifies the end of a generational history and places our future squarely in our hands,” Ramaphosa said.

    The president had this to say about Andrew Mlangeni:

    “Until recently, we were able to sit at Bab’ Mlangeni’s feet and draw on his wealth of wisdom and his unfailing commitment – even at his very advanced age – to a better life for all South Africans.

    Bab’ Mlangeni’s dramatic life was a unique example of heroism and humility inhabiting the same person and throughout his long life he remained a beacon of ethical leadership and care for humanity in our own country and around the globe.

    “With his passing as the last remaining Rivonia Trialist, Bab’ Mlangeni has indeed passed the baton to his compatriots to build the South Africa he fought to liberate and to reconstruct during our democratic dispensation.

    “He was a champion and exemplar of the values we need to build a South Africa that provides dignity and opportunity for all and which takes its rightful place in the global community of nations.

    “My thoughts are with the Mlangeni Family today and with all who have had the blessing of meeting and being touched by Bab’ Mlangeni’s passion for achieving a better society as well as his passion for a life that is well-rounded, adventurous, healthy and embracing of people from all walks of life.”

    May his soul rest in perfect peace.
