Issued by the office of the ANC EC Provincial Secretary
It is with great sadness that we learnt of Comrade Andile Nkuhlu”s passing away. It is indeed a deep pain of this loss, not only to the family of Nkuhlu’s and friends but to the comrades and the political space in general. Those who shared space with him would remember him for his robust engagement and approach to issues he believed in.
As we mourn his passing, we are reminded of his determined contribution over many years to the struggle for freedom and transforming young peoples lives.
From his early days in the movement and the struggle, and through his involvement in ANC Youth League, Comrade Andile demonstrated great bravery, resourcefulness and initiative attitude and capabilities.
As we look back on a life well-lived, we are reminded of his compassion, humanity and integrity.
A person of great principle, Andile was a resolute in his commitment to the people of this country and to the cause of democracy everywhere.
The ANC hope that the family will be able to draw some comfort from the many heartfelt tributes that have been paid to Andile by those who loved, respected and admired him.
As we mourn this loss together, let us find solace in the knowledge that the ideals to which Comrade Andile dedicated his life remain at the centre of our national effort to achieve a better life for all our people.
