Set aside ’step-aside’ talk on Hani’s day, widow pleads


Chris Hani’s widow, Limpho, yesterday pleaded with ANC alliance leaders not to politicise the occasion commemorat­ing her husband’s death, warning this could cause further divisions. She was referring to comments made earlier by Cosatu’s second deputy president, Louise Thipe, who said the union federation supported the 2017 Nasrec conference resolution­s to have ANC leaders implicated in corruption step aside from their positions immediatel­y. Thipe was speaking at the 28th annual Chris Hani commemorat­ion and wreath-laying ceremony, which took place at the Thomas Titus Nkobi Memorial Park in Elspark in Ekurhuleni.
