Default 2Pac's Trip To South Africa Cancelled

For personal reasons, Tupacís mother, Afeni Shakur, has postponed the familyís scheduled trip to South Africa, where the rapperís ashes were to be spread in Soweto and the 10th anniversary of his death was to be recognized.

The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation continued with its plans in Atlanta to commemorate the occasion by inviting the public to the Peace Garden Saturday, Sept. 9th, at 1 p.m.

Afeni Shakur and the staff of the Center asked everyone to bring a plant in memory of a loved one to place in the Peace Garden. If people couldn't attend, the Center asked that a plant be laid in their personal garden in memory of not only, their loved ones, but for all fallen heroes. A celebration and drum ceremony followed the garden event.

The trip to South Africa will now take place on June 16, 2007. The date coincides with the anniversary of the Soweto uprising as well as Tupacís 36th birthday.

"My family and I regret that they must postpone the trip to South Africa to a later date, due to personal reasons," Ms. Shakur said in a statement. "We understand the work and time that everyone has put into making this trip possible but the work of helping the children and sick of South Africa must continue. We will still be sending aid and relief to those organizations and groups that we have established relationships with including the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Over the next couple of months, we want to spend time strengthening those ties. The invitation for the two students to come over to the Tupac Shakur Center on an exchange remains open and we intend to see it to fruition."
2Pac Forever!
