The neglected grave site where 29 of the Langa Massacre victims are buried is to be given a R750 000 revamp, with a marble slab placed over the entire row of bodies buried at the KwaNobuhle Cemetery.
A fence will also be built around the grave site, with a new, three-sectioned tombstone placed inside the enclosure.
The left and right sides of the tombstone will list the names of the victims, while the middle section will be inscribed with a brief history.
The grave site commemorates an apartheid-era massacre in which police shot dead 35 funeral-goers on the 25th anniversary of the 1960 Sharpeville shooting.
Only 29 of the 35 people who were killed on March 21 1985 were buried at the KwaNobuhle Cemetery.
The families of the remaining five opted for private burials.
The 1985 shooting took place just outside Langa township, and became known as the Langa Massacre.
