LATEST: The mother of slain rapper TUPAC SHAKUR has scrapped plans to mark the 10th anniversary of her son's death in South Africa due to "personal reasons." Former Black Panther activist AFENI SHAKUR was planning to commemorate the death of her son by scattering his ashes in Soweto during a trip to South Africa with family members. Shakur also planned to meet former South African leader NELSON MANDELA and visit hospitals and orphanages during the eight-day trip later this month (SEP06). Instead, Shakur will host a less ambitious memorial with family, friends and fans of the late rap star in the Peace Garden at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, on Saturday (09SEP06). Afeni Shakur now hopes to visit Soweto next summer (JUN07), to mark the anniversary of the Soweto uprising as well as what would have been her son's 36th birthday. She says, "My family and I regret that they must postpone the trip to South Africa to a later date, due to personal reasons. "We understand the work and time that everyone has put into making this trip possible."
