Issued by the Office of the ANC EC Provincial Secretary.
The ANC really is deeply saddened, pained and lost one of the tested veterans of the ANC. She was a glue that bind the Tambo family and its originality, able to project the organic details of how the humble family produced the giant politician – OR Tambo. She has shown amazing enthusiasm on issues of development for Mbizana , epitomizing what O.R Tambo aspired. Loosing someone like her has never been easy. As ANC, we wish to convey our deepest condolences to the family and recommitting our everlasting love and support to Tambo family. We fly our provincial banners at half- mast, bowing our heads in sorrow, adoring her unflinching and unwavering support of the ANC during ruthless times of the oppressive regime and when democracy triumphed.
She was an ardent tower of hope for the rural masses and women, a reservoir and fountain of knowledge, a loyal member of the ANC until the end. We wish Tambo family God given peace and prayers as they mourn the stalwart. We will be visiting the family tomorrow as part of paying our respect and delivering tractors, constructing Milling Hub (Rural enterprise development), for the people of Mbizana – Alfred Nzo district tomorrow.
