03/02/2017: Mayor Mashaba to attend Memorial Service at Sakhumzi Restaurant, Soweto
03 February 2017
Today, the Executive Mayor of Johannesburg, Cllr Herman Mashaba will be attending the Memorial Service of Mr Kwesi Hudson, the manager of Sakhumzi Restaurant on Vilakazi Street in Soweto, who was killed just after midnight on Sunday during an attempted robbery. 


Mr Hudson, 60, had worked as a manager at the Restaurant for two years. This was the second hit on the restaurant, the first being late last year when robbers managed to get away with some of the restaurant’s money.

Sakhumzi Restaurant is not the only restaurant that has been victimized by criminal elements seeking to destroy the confidence of business owners who are working hard at contributing to the economic development of Soweto and the City in general, as well as the local, national and international patrons and tourists who support them.

We have committed to ensuring that those who committed this heinous crime are brought to book. We have also pledged to increase security through the installation of CCTV Cameras along Vilakazi Street as well as increasing police presence to ensure that criminal elements are exposed and apprehended, and that these isolated incidents do not recur.

Mayor Mashaba will be joining the family and the community of Soweto in bidding farewell to their beloved Kwesi Hudson, whose brutal and untimely death will not be in vain.

The Memorial Service will take place as follows:

Date: 3 February 2017

Time: 15:00

Venue: Sakhumzi Restaurant, Vilakazi Street, Soweto

There will be interview and photo opportunities.
