'There is so much Ben Turok stood for that many of us should live to emulate'

African National Congress (ANC) stalwart Murphy Morobe says many should emulate what party veteran Ben Turok stood for.

Professor Turok died at the age of 92.

His family says he passed away in the early hours of Monday morning.

There is so much that Ben Turok stood for that many of us can and should live to emulate.
