Members of Mkhonto WeSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA), the community and family members bid an emotional farewell to Cde Malibongwe Mjodo (48) in Cape Town this weekend.
The struggle stalwart was born in 1962 and as a young man, became involved in fighting for South Africa’s freedom, even taking a bullet during protest action. Those with bullet wounds were being arrested by the police, so comrades rushed him for treatment at a private doctor in Observatory.
Being shot did not stop him from his activism, and he spent much time on the run from apartheid forces. He was arrested in the Eastern Cape, and imprisoned.
Cde Mjodo leaves behind his wife, sister and five children. Hamba Kahle Mkohonto
