President Jacob Zuma will tomorrow, 12 September 2017, visit Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre in Pretoria and lay a wreath at the cell in which the liberation struggle hero Mr Stephen Bantu Biko died, as part of commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the passing of the Black Consciousness Movement leader.

Mr Biko died in 12 September 1977 in a police cell at the then Pretoria Central Prison (now Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre) following his arrest in August 1977. He had been savagely beaten by apartheid security police while in police detention in Port Elizabeth and sustained serious injuries including brain damage.
