The George Municipality is mourning the death of its former mayor, Marius Swart, who died yesterday from Covid 19.
79-year-old Swart served as mayor from 2000 to 2004.
He also served as a member of Parliament for two terms.
The DA has also paid tribute to Swart, saying he was a proud
member of their East Region.
Municipal spokesperson, Athane Scholtz: "Mr Swart served George with excellence as mayor and was an outstanding representative of our city and the Southern Cape while serving as a member of Parliament years later.
Many current and former officials and councillors have fond memories of serving with him, and his charismatic presence will be remembered fondly.""https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/139789187_3892266470825708_5105282431783845366_n.jpg?_nc_cat=109&ccb=2&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=BLkEAko32LYAX8-10H5&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=565ec52d4eb05406726187b183357177&oe=602AED92"
