ANC STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF LUCKY NXUMALO

The African National Congress is deeply saddened by the untimely passing of renowned photo-journalist Lucky Nxumalo. He belonged to a generation of fearless activist photojournalists who used the might of their lenses to tell truth to power.

Nxumalo was among the early pioneers of photojournalism in South Africa, and a mentor not only to his colleagues, but to hundreds of upcoming photographers across generations in recent times. Nxumalo without a camera was a rare sight. His passing is indeed a loss to the media industry and a country as a whole.

We convey our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

May his soul rest in peace.

END
