Hon­our­ing Philip Kgosana

CityPress - - Voices -

AW de Vil­liers West­ern Cape I sup­port the call to hon­our Philip Kgosana by re­nam­ing De Waal Drive af­ter him. Pa­trick Kgosana Gaut­eng This would be an hon­ourable trib­ute to a man who has self­lessly served the peo­ple and al­ways acted when there was a need to fight in­jus­tice. Ike Mafole via SMS Yes, be­cause of the prom­i­nent role he has played in the strug­gle for na­tional free­dom, democ­racy and hu­man rights, and the courage he dis­played in the face of ad­ver­sity, ruth­less­ness and bru­tal­ity. Gaufi Ngakane North West Philip Kgosana, who led a peace­ful march on De Waal Drive in 1960, dur­ing which no one was in­jured, must be re­mem­bered as one of our lead­ers. I talk as a hus­band and father, and say to hell with moth­ers who think they should in­herit from their de­ceased sons’ es­tates. If no pro­vi­sion was made legally by the de­ceased, ev­ery­thing be­longs to the wife and chil­dren. I call on all men to stand up and do the right thing. Share your pro­ceeds with your chil­dren and stop be­ing con­trolled by your moth­ers who, in most cases, are the cause of your mar­riage woes. Let the old woman go back to her house in Lusik­isiki and make peace with her grand­chil­dren.

Shiceka’s wife and sons must not be cruel to his mum be­cause that might cause bad luck for the rest of their lives. Gogo needs re­spect and dig­nity in her last days.
