The ANC in the Western Cape has paid tribute to one of its former secretaries, 47 year-old Songezo Mjongile, who died last night in Johannesburg after a short battle with cancer.
Provincial party spokesperson, Ronelda Nalumango, says the ANC mourns one of a new generation of party activists.
She says Mjongile, who
was provincial secretary from 2011 to 2015, was a brave leader who fought colon cancer in the same way: "A few months ago he told us he was battling cancer, he was a dedicated ANC member and had leadership stamped all over him.
He was the leader of COSAS in the Western Cape and went on to become the national leader of COSAS.
He also occupied senior positions in the ANC Youth League and was also Treasurer and Secretary of the ANC Provincial Executive Committee in the Western Cape.""https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/119796422_3547663548619337_8643705963519320832_n.jpg?_nc_cat=107&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=19nZkVy_pFEAX_ZzhYd&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=3b8fc8c04754a6d70eb6e8aab8b5936c&oe=5F8B641C","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p168x128/119813891_3547663871952638_1638426056078222803_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=4pL81c1ZI5gAX9QTxAH&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=2c6dbfe740050d1641b8e65cde94d8e3&oe=5F88F083","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s526x296/119799018_3547663968619295_3041656351174356497_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=OXw1qk_B-DwAX9r6UFZ&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=7&oh=35a2f9331a6bab122ed8299d3b9c042a&oe=5F8873D9","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p235x165/119821756_3547664081952617_3510411640350644025_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=z6dqoUovnSQAX-TdBG9&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=bed5264ae7cbccc8d337f77733994b35&oe=5F8A4401"
