[PHOTO ESSAY] Remembering Chris Hani

In Photo Essay, South Africa

Today marks 24 years (10 April 1993) since the assassination of struggle stalwart Chris Hani. Born Martin Thembisile Hani, he was the leader of the South African Communist Party and chief of staff of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the armed wing of the African National Congress (ANC).

Early last week, Chris Hani’s daughter, Lindiwe Hani released a book titles Being Chris Hani’s Daughter, in which she shares intimate recollections of the 12 years she spent with her father, also opening up about how his untimely death shook the Hani family.

We remember Chris Hani in pictures through some of the highlights in his life.
