At the same time, Parliament's Arts and Culture committee's Xoliswa Tom says they are saddened by the death of Nzima whose memory will be preserved in the collection of country's history.

Nzima said that for many years he regretted taking the photo because it destroyed his career in journalism.

Legendary photojournalist Sam NzimaNzima is remembered for taking the iconic photo of Hector Pieterson that drew the world's attention to the atrocities of apartheid during the 1976 uprising. "His camera captured the full brutality of apartheid oppression on the nation's psyche and history - from the Defiance Campaign through to forced removals and the Soweto student uprisings", read the statement. But he became proud when he saw the lasting influence of his photo and its contribution to ending apartheid, he said.
