South African President Cyril Ramaphosa will today unveil a statue of the late struggle stalwart, Oliver Tambo at the OR Tambo International Airport, while the City of Ekurhuleni has declared October as OR Tambo month and has arranged several activities to honour his legacy. Tambo, who was born in the little-known small rural village of Nkantolo in the Eastern Cape on 27 October 1917, led the ANC from 1967 when it was banned up to 1991 when it was unbanned. He died two years later in April 1993 just a year before the first democratic election in 1994.
