The remaining Rivonia Trialist Bab’ Andrew Mlangeni passes on at 95

SEKHUKHUNE – President Cyril Ramaphosa has described the passing of Andrew Makete Mlangeni as signifying the end of a generational history and placing the future of the country squarely in the hands of the people.

The remaining Rivonia Trialist and Isithwalandwe Seaparankwe Andrew Makete Mlangeni, who turned 95 on 06 June 2020, was admitted to 1 Military Hospital in Thaba Tshwane, Pretoria, on Tuesday, 14 July 2020, following an abdominal complaint.

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

The President participated in Bab’ Mlangeni’s birthday celebration last month in the company of, among other notable guests, presidents Thabo Mbeki, Kgalema Motlanthe and Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi.

Bab’ Mlangeni was awarded Isithwalandwe Seaparankwe – the highest honour by the African National Congress for those who have made an outstanding contribution to the liberation struggle in 1992 and received the Presidential Order for Meritorious Service Class 1, Gold from President Nelson Mandela in 1999.

Ramaphosa said until recently, they 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 humanity 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 nations,” remarked Ramaphosa.
