KZN Government shocked and saddened by the passing of Deputy Speaker Mluleki Ndobe.
07 NOVEMBER 2020
ON behalf of the Government and the people of KwaZulu-Natal, we wish to convey our absolute shock, sadness, and heartache at the sudden and unexpected demise of THE Deputy Speaker of KZN Legislature Mr Mluleki Ndobe.
This is a great loss for our province. The people of KwaZulu-Natal have lost a devoted and outstanding servant, who committed his life to serving the people of our province.
To many of us Deputy Speaker Ndobe was a brother, friend and comrade. From an early age, Deputy Speaker Ndobe distinguished himself as a committed and highly competent leader, who was passionate about community development.
He had a deep understanding of local government and rose through those ranks, to successfully carve himself a niche as one of our foremost leaders in this important sphere of governance, which is closest to the people.
He always worked tirelessly, with unmatched dedication, to improve people's lives, and left a mark in virtually every capacity in which he served the as a public representative and a tireless servant of the people's glorious movement, the African National Congress.
We had become aware that he had been unwell, we were still nursing the hope that he will recover, we really did not expect him to leave us so suddenly. Therefore, his untimely passing will be difficult to accept. Nevertheless, we have to take the baton from him, and solider on in our quest to realise the National Democratic Revolution. In due course, we will be making our way to be with the Ndobe family, in order to coalesce and lend them our support at this difficult time.
We convey our deepest sympathy and condolences to the Ndobe family, his colleagues and the people of KwaZulu-Natal.
