Moodliar fu­neral

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - NEWS -

THE fu­neral of well-known Port El­iz­a­beth doc­tor and anti-apartheid ac­tivist Jayasee­lan Moodliar will be held in Walmer to­mor­row.

Moodliar, who was at the fore­front of the black re­sis­tance cam­paign against apartheid gov­ern­ment, died on Thurs­day, aged 81.

Moodliar was pres­i­dent of the Port El­iz­a­beth Black Civic Or­gan­i­sa­tion (Pe­bco) in 1980, putting his life on the line to pro­vide med­i­cal at­ten­tion to black ca­su­al­ties in­jured in vi­o­lent con­fronta­tions with state se­cu­rity forces in the ’80s.

He helped some of the vic­tims in the 1985 Uiten­hage Langa mas­sacre.

The ANC ex­tended its con­do­lences to the Moodliar fam­ily.

The fu­neral will be held at the Walmer Town Hall at 9.30am. – Rochelle de Kock
