The ANC in the Northern Cape and their alliance partners visited the bereaved family of the late ANC MP, Tina Joemat-Pettersson.
Leaders of the party condemned those speaking ill of the late MP. Provincially she’s remembered as a formidable anti-apartheid activist who was part of the United Democratic Front (UDF) and helped rebuild structures of the SA Communist Party in the province.
The late ANC MP, who was previously an Education MEC for two terms, was praised for achieving top matric results for four consecutive years, a record yet to be broken.
Joemat-Pettersson passed away passed on Momday. She was serving as a Member of Parliament and the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police.
Provincial ANC deputy secretary, Maruping Lekwene elaborates.
“For us we as a movement, we are focusing on what comrade Tina has done for the organisation, for our people, for our country which supersedes all other things for all these years. For me, we are assuring that we are with the family all the way to give them support to be with them during this difficult time. So, comrade Tina or our Tina was a solid cadre.”
