STATEMENT BY LOWER SOUTH COAST ANC:
ANC LOWER SOUTH COAST REGION MOURNS THE PASSING OF A REVOLUTIONARY.
The African National Congress in Lower South Coast Region is shocked and deeply saddened by the untimely passing of ANC PEC member and Provincial Spokesperson Cde Ricardo Mthembu .
A revolutionary held in high regard within the structures of the ANC , he was known for his brilliant leadership qualities, and organizational discipline . An activist politician and a peoples person at heart, he always went the extra mile when carrying out his duties within the province .
As a region we remember him fondly for his contribution towards deepening and strengthening our democracy at a local level.
His ability to unite and galvanise all sectors of society to work for the greater good earned him the respect of all parties in the province . We will certainly miss his broad smile, robust debates and well informed discussions on strategies to move SA forward.
We lower our revolutionary banner for a revolutionary who fought until the end. We are hopeful that his fighting spirit will guide us to victory over this deadly pandemic.
We offer our deepest condolences to the family of Cde Mthembu , the broader MDM structures which he served diligently, and pray that God gives you strength and courage at this time.
