Market Theatre to host final Kgositsile memorial service


JOHANNESBURG – A third memorial service for national poet laureate Keorapetse Kgositsile will be held at Johannesburg’s Market Theatre on Friday.

Kgositsile was honoured by family and friends at a moving memorial at the Johannesburg City Hall on Thursday.

He died last week aged 79.

Bra Willie, as he was affectionately known, was South Africa’s first national poet laureate and a recipient of the National Order of Ikhamanga.

President Jacob Zuma has declared a special provincial funeral.

Kgositsile will be buried on Tuesday.
