The ANC Eastern Cape Provincial Chairperson and Premier, Cde Lubabalo Oscar Mabuyane accompanied by Nelson Mandela Bay Regional Task Team members and the ANC Veterans League , will this afternoon pay a visit to the bereaved Sample family to hold a prayer service in honour of the slain anti apartheid activist and former Robben Island political prisoner, Peter Sample who was gunned down on Christmas eve (24th December 2019) at his house in Zwide.
Cde Peter Sample served time in Robben Island with the likes of Former President, Cde Kgalema Motlanthe, Cde Tokyo Sexwale, Cde Mike Xego and Cde Harry Gwala for political activism and fighting the oppressive apartheid government.
The outpouring of condolences and grief displayed by communities and formations throughout the Region , attest to the critical role Comrade Sample played under the banner of the ANC. We will always remember the crucial role he played as we sought to build a new and caring society out of the ruins of our ugly past.
Members of the media are invited to cover the event as follows:
