The Democratic Alliance (DA) has expressed sadness at the passing of its Member of Parliament Cameron MacKenzie who lost his battle against COVID-19 last night.

DA Chief Whip Natasha Mazzone has described Cameron as a valued member of the Party’s parliamentary caucus and a dear friend who will be missed sorely.

Mazzone says South Africa has lost a great public servant who served his country diligently and with the utmost passion.

She says the DA extends its thoughts and prayers with Cameron’s wife, Lisa, and their three children.

Mazzone says the DA is urging all South Africans to remain safe during these difficult times of the coronavirus.
