SHARPEVILLE Nightclub is one name that refuses to die.

SHARPEVILLE Nightclub is one name that refuses to die.

Though the place ceased to be a nightclub about a decade ago, residents of Sharpeville still refer to the place as the nightclub.

Sowetan was one of those enraged to hear that the march to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Sharpeville Massacre would start at the "nightclub".

Sedibeng mayor Mohole Mofokeng clarified: "That place stopped being a nightclub a long time ago, but it is still known as one. The name has simply stuck to the building."

In our editorial leader, unfamiliar with this Sharpeville landmark, we hastily wrote: "To start a night vigil of such an important date in our history from speakeasy is no less than spitting on the graves of those who died for the right to their innate dignity." - Luzuko Pongoma
