“It is a profound loss to the people of the entire King Cetshwayo District, KwaZulu-Natal and the entire country. She was a dedicated leader, committed freedom fighter and championed a number of good causes from community development, organised labour and fought for women and children wellbeing, Covid-19, to say the least until her passing,” says District municipality Speaker, Khulani Hadebe.
