Soni khumbula - we will remember

Posted in News on Apr 08, 2002.

April 11 forms an integral part of our daily lives and history as we will always remember those who lost their lives while going to watch a clash between South African football giants Kaizer Chiefs and rivals Orlando Pirates.

Soni khumbula - we will remember you, will be the theme this Thursday at the memorial service to be held at Ellis Park Stadium, Gate 4 from 10:00 until 12:00.

The programme will be directed by outspoken Amakhosi PRO Mphuthumi Mafani.

Rhema Church Pastor Dick Khoza will give an opening prayer and we will have speeches from Kaizer Chiefs MD Kaizer Motaung, Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza and Sport Minister Ngconde Balfour among others.
