Orlando Pirates

Khoza’s Heartfelt Tribute To SA Icon

Orlando Pirates chairman, Irvin Khoza, has joined the multitudes in the country and around the world in paying tribute to South African struggle stalwart Andrew Mlangeni.

Mlangeni, who spent over two decades on Robben Island after he was convicted at the Rivonia Treason trial in 1964, died at 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria on Tuesday due to an abdominal complication.

He was 95 years old and was the last Rivonia trialist who was still alive. In paying tribute to the fallen hero, Khoza thanked him for his support to the Buccaneers and said, as quoted on the club’s official website: 

Today our nation, continent and the world woke up to the sad announcement about the passing of Ntate Andrew Mlangeni. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to the Mlangeni family. Your loss is our loss.

What a PEACEFUL and PEACE loving man he was. He honestly spoke his mind, even in tough uncomfortable situations, always paving a way towards peace. He spent his whole adult life, including a long cruel incarceration, dedicated in PEACE. The privilege of being with him meant being engulfed by PEACE.

Your Orlando Pirates Family, which you showered with support until the end, will miss you greatly Oom Andrew. 

Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate.

May your soul repose PEACEFULLY.
