Cecilia Makiwane, Philatelic Stamp issued by former Ciskei
Cecilia Makiwane, the first black registered nurse in apartheid South Africa was honored by a philatelic stamp issued by the former bantustan republic, Ciskei. Proud to have that stamp with me finally in my possession. Bought it from a Pretoria collector. The Cecilia Makiwane Hospital in Mdantsane, Eastern Cape is also named after her.
