The Late Alf Kumalo memorial serviceRead more…
Today the SA National Editors’ Forum commemorates Black Wednesday, the infamous day in 1977 – October 19—when the National Party government banned newspapers and journalists and also jailed a number of editors and journalists under detention without trial laws. Sanef’s commemoration this year focuses on President Jacob Zuma’s appeal for the urgent repeal or substitution of “old order legislation” affecting the admission of lawyers and advocates to the profession in the former “homelands”. It was made a few weeks ago when he addressed the annual general meeting of the Johannesburg Attorneys Association.
Sanef applauds the interest shown by President Zuma in the need for this apartheid-era legislation to be removed, especially when it is considered that South Africa has been a democracy for 18 years and the call is timely.
The Memorial Service will be held at the SABC, Radio park Building, Auckland Park on Thursday, at 14h00.
# The Funeral Service will be held at Walter Sisulu Hall in Randburg starting from 09h - 12h00 on Saturday, 13 October.Read more…
