3. South Africa: Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and husband recover from COVID-19
South African Minister of Defence and Military Veterans Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and her husband Charles Nqakula, who is the National Security Advisor to the president, have recovered from COVID-19.
The presidency, who issued a statement on Friday, July 17, said the government is pleased to know that the pair made a recovery. Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and her husband tested positive recently and are currently in self-isolation.
Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu said all their symptoms have dissipated and cleared.
4. Rev. C.T. Vivian, civil rights veteran who worked alongside MLK, dies at 95
The Rev. C.T. Vivian, a beloved civil rights veteran who marched alongside the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., died at his home in Atlanta, his loved ones said Friday. He was 95. Vivian’s daughter, Denise Morse, confirmed her father’s death and told the media that he was “one of the most wonderful men who ever walked the earth.”
The civil rights titan suffered a stroke about two months ago but seemed to be on the mend before “he just stopped eating” and died of natural causes, friend and business partner Don Rivers said.
Vivan was active in sit-in protests in Peoria, Illinois, in the 1940s, and met King during the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott — a demonstration spurred by Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat to a white rider. The 13-month mass protest drew international attention.
Our condolences go out to his family.
