CURRENT ISSUES

In 1962 Andrew Moketi Moeti Mlangeni was one of the first six members of Umkhonto We Sizwe to be trained in Communist China. A keen golfer he had now to concentrate on Politics. In 1964 he was arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Rivonia Treason Trial and incarcerated in the cell next to Nelsen Mandela on Robben Island. He returned with a degree and post graduate qualification in Political Science - to this home that he had occupied since 1954 with his wife June and their children. In 2015 the backroom boy became head of the ANC's Integrity and Ethics Committee, an accolade he richly deserved.

Passing of Andrew Mlangeni
It is with sadness we record the loss of Andrew Mlangeni the last of the Rivonia Trialists and a Freeman of the City of Johannesburg. We awarded him a blue polaque for the house in Dube where he and his wife had made their home together . they were parted for the 26 years he was on Robben Island but he was able to return to it on his release. Andrew was warly welcoming when we visited him and very happy to show us old photographs and also a few Golf Trophies.
