Special funeral for PAC’s Kgosana

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Pretoria- President Jacob Zuma has declared a special provincial official funeral for the late Pan-Africanist Congress (PAC) stalwart Phillip Kgosana, the Presidency said on Sunday.

Kgosana (80) passed away last week Thursday at a Pretoria hospital after an operation.

He was well-known for leading more than 30 000 anti-pass protesters from Langa to Parliament in 1960.

He devoted his entire life to the liberation struggle and served in various leadership roles in the PAC while studying at the University of Cape Town.

After the banning of political organisations, Kgosana fled to Ethiopia where he continued his activities of the PAC while also completing his studies.

On his return from exile, he served the PAC and remained in the service to the people until his death.
