The former African National Congress (ANC) Gauteng provincial secretary and South African high commissioner to Uganda, Bavumile Vilakazi, died of a heart attack in Kampala. He was on his way back from the airport to fetch Deputy President Jacob Zuma. Vilakazi was the first mayor of the Ekurhuleni Metro on the East Rand before he was posted to Uganda. He was tried in the United Democratic Front (UDF) 1985 Delmas treason trial, which also included former Premier of North West Province Popo Molefe and current minister of Defence Mosiuoa Lekota.
