Reading Time: < 1 minute

UDM Chief Whip Nqabayomzi Kwankwa says ANC MP Sibusiso Radebe’s death is a wakeup call that something should be done about the high levels of crime in South Africa.

Kwankwa was a friend of Radebe and a fellow MP. He extended his condolences to the Radebe family and the ANC.

Radebe was shot and killed in an attempted hijacking at Roodepoort in Johannesburg on Tuesday night.

Kwankwa explains how Radebe’s death has touched him,“I am personally shocked and devastated by the untimely death of Sibusiso Radebe. Because not only was he my friend here in Parliament but we worked together during the concerned young parliamentarians as we were trying to put a response to the Fees Must Fall crisis as young people in Parliament.”

“He did an exceptional job in that structure. His untimely death is really very unfortunate indeed and also calls us to do something about the high levels of crime in South Africa. On behalf of the United Democratic Movement I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the family, friend and the African National Congress on the passing of comrade Sbu,” says Kwankwa.
