PRISCILLA JANA - A TRIBUTE

AUDIO

1987 - The government has imposed severe restrictions on African National Congress leader Govan Mbeki, prohibiting from speaking in public or leaving Port Elizabeth. Priscilla Jena was his lawyer.

Tribute continue to pour for human rights lawyer Priscilla Jana who passed away. Jana dedicated her legal practice to representing political activists during the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, one of the most turbulent and repressive periods of apartheid. She also represented the likes of former president Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Ahmed Kathrada, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and Solomon Mahlangu. 

To pay tribute is :
