The African National Congress (ANC) joins the government and people of the North West in mourning the sudden passing of Comrade Gordon Kegakilwe who reportedly succumbed to COVID 19 complications. Comrade Kegakilwe passed on Monday the 6th of July 2020.
At the time of his passing, Comrade Kegakilwe served the Government and people of the North West in the Provincial Executive as MEC for Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs.
We pay homage to Comrade Kegakilwe as a hardworking servant of our people who was selflessly committed to the notion of building a better life for all.
Comrade Kegakilwe previously served the ANC in various capacities, including as the North West Provincial Deputy Secretary and as Regional Chairperson of Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati.
Comrade Kegakilwe was currently serving in the Interim Provincial Committee established by the National Executive Committee to rebuild ANC structures in the North West.
The best tribute we can pay in honour of this outstanding servant of the people is to intensify our war on Covid-19 by encouraging all South Africans to adhere to health safety protocols.
We convey our heartfelt condolences to Kegakilwe’s family, the entire membership of the ANC and the people of the North West.
May his Soul Rest In Peace
