The PAC has apologized to the Sobukwe family following the disruptions at the funeral of struggle stalwart Zondeni Sobukwe. The 91-year-old was laid to rest in the Eastern Cape on Saturday. She was granted a category two state funeral by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Proceedings were disrupted by some PAC members – who did not want to be addressed by ANC officials. This resulted in Deputy President David Mabuza – who was scheduled to deliver the eulogy – abandoning the funeral due to safety concerns.
Speaking to David O’Sullivan PAC President Narious Moloto says the people who caused chaos at the funeral Mama Sobukwe are not PAC members and can therefore not be held to account.
