“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of ANC stalwart and my former parliamentary colleague, adversary and friend, Jackson Mthembu. The news of his death this afternoon comes as a great shock, and I can only imagine the devastating impact this must have on those who were close to him,” said Steenhuisen.

He extended the party’s sincere condolences to Mthembu’s family, his friends and the African National Congress (ANC) in particular.

“His passing will be mourned by all who knew him and everyone who worked with him, whether in his party, in cabinet or around the parliamentary precinct. I pray that his loved ones find strength and comfort in this difficult time.”

He said the party had lost a generous man with a big heart and an even bigger sense of humour.
