CAPE TOWN – Former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan will give the keynote address at Ahmed Kathrada’s memorial service in Cape Town on Thursday afternoon.
Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba and Robben Island veteran Eddie Daniels will be among the speakers.
The Cape Town leg of the memorial service Kathrada will be held at the St. George’s Cathedral.
Kathrada died at the age of 87 last week Tuesday, after a short illness following brain surgery.
