Ekurhuleni Executive Mayor Cllr Mzwandile Masina will on Friday, September 8, 2017 pay respects to the late struggle stalwarts Mr. Thomas and Mama Winifred Nkobi by leading the unveiling of their headstone.
The burial of Mama Winifred in the same grave with her husband necessitates a change in the inscription on the headstone which currently reflects only Mr. Nkobi.
The late Mr. Thomas and Mama Winifred Nkobi were lifelong members of the African National Congress and played a pivotal role in parenting and supporting freedom fighters and members of Umkhonto we Sizwe while in exile.
The Nkobi family's grave is situated at the foot of the Chris Hani walk of remembrance on the heroes' acre within the Thomas Nkobi Memorial Park.
Details of the Nkobi family headstone unveiling are as follows:
Date: Friday, September 8.
Venue: Thomas Nkobi Memorial Park, Boksburg.
