President Ramaphosa to unveil Oliver Tambo statue

President Cyril Ramaphosa will unveil a statue of the late struggle stalwart, Oliver Tambo at OR Tambo International Airport.

Tambo was born in the small little-known rural village of Nkantolo in the Eastern Cape on this day (27 October) in 1917.

He led the ANC from 1967 when it was banned up to 1991 when it was unbanned.

He died two years later in April 1993 just a year before the first democratic election in 1994.

The City of Ekurhuleni has declared October as OR Tambo month and has arranged several activities to honour his legacy.
