Former president Jacob Zuma reflected on the contribution of the late struggle stalwart Andrew Mlangeni.
Zuma was speaking about the life and times of Mlangeni, and how he first met the anti-apartheid veteran who was the last remaining Rivonia trialist.
Reflecting on the life and contribution the stalwart had made towards the struggle against apartheid, Zuma said he first met Mlangeni in jail.
Zuma said Mlangeni belonged to a group who joined the ANC in the early 1950s.
He added the veteran had been highly involved in the changes within the ANC during the struggle when calls for freedom heightened.
Zuma said Mlangeni was also among the volunteers who had conducted door-to-door campaigns asking residents what type of freedom they wanted.
