The son of liberation icon Robert Sobukwe, Dinilesizwe, has passed on, it was reported on Wednesday.

The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania’s Dr Motsoko Pheko posted a message of condolences on Facebook to the Sobukwe family.

Pheko wrote: “He founded the Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe Trust to preserve the legacy of his father. He recalls his father saying, ‘Don’t walk with your head down, have pride, walk with your head up because everything in this continent belongs to you.'”
