Sad and untimely passing of ANC MP Cde Fezeka Loliwe

05 March 2018

The Office of the ANC Chief Whip has learned with shock and deep sadness about the tragic passing of ANC Member of Parliament, comrade Fezeka Loliwe. Comrade Loliwe lost her life in a motor vehicle accident earlier today while on her way from her parliamentary Constituency Office in Fort Beaufort in the Eastern Cape.

Comrade Loliwe was a dedicated public representative who joined Parliament in 2014. She served as the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee (PC) on Labour and had previously served as the ANC Whip for the PC on Labour. She formed part of the formidable team who conducted the Parliamentary Inquiry into the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC). Comrade Loliwe was also the Whip of our ANC Caucus Disciplinary Committee (CDC).

Her untimely departure leaves a deep void within structures of the ANC Caucus and Parliament as a whole. The people of South Africa have truly been robbed of one of the most dedicated public representatives.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the entire Loliwe family, her friends and her comrades.

May her revolutionary spirit rest in eternal peace.

Issued by the Office of the ANC Chief Whip, Hon. Jackson Mthembu.
