JOHANNESBURG - The Ahmed Kathrada Foundation says not enough has been done to celebrate the life of struggle hero, Ashley Kriel.

The foundation held special screenings of a new documentary on Kriel's life titled Action Kommandant.

Kriel, an Umkhonto We Sizwe member, was 20-years-old when he was killed by apartheid police in Cape Town.

The foundation's executive director Neeshan Bolt says South Africans need to know more about Kriel's contribution to the fight for democracy.

"I think we have an incredible amount work to do to record many of the untold stories, to make sure people understand the full magnitude of the numbers and thousands of people who made freedom possible and many of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice."
