  |   Pretorianews

Pretoria - Families of six members of Poqo - the armed wing of the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) - who were hanged in 1963 became emotionally overwhelmed on Wednesday as their remains were exhumed at the Mamelodi West Cemetery.

The sombre ceremony which started off with the families retracing their slain kinsmen's final steps before they were hanged at the gallows - in the now Kgosi Mampuru II Correctional Centre on the outskirts of Pretoria CBD - was led by the Missing Persons Task Team (MPTT) of the National Prosecuting Authority, in conjunction with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) unit of the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development.
