Bizarre reburial plan for Mbeki’s father slammed
A bizarre plan to relocate the remains of President Thabo Mbeki’s father to a Port Elizabeth struggle museum has been slammed as illegal and immoral. The plan, driven by Nelson Mandela Metro Mayor Nceba Faku, is for anti-apartheid veterans Govan Mbeki and Raymond Mhlaba to be reburied at Red Location Museum next month. The Sunday Times has established that the completed mausoleum would cost more than one-point-two-million rands. But the President’s brother, Moeletsi Mbeki, says his father will never be moved from his grave and that any reburial will be illegal. Plans for Mbeki’s reburial nevertheless continued this week.
