The United Democratic Movement is saddened by the loss of Education MEC, Mandla Makupula.
This is not only a loss for his family or the Eastern Cape, but to the nation.
We wish to send a message of condolence to the family, friends and to the African National Congress, as well as the education fraternity at large. His departure leaves a scar especially during a time that the province still faces a whole lot of challenges in education development.
May his family find strength and solace in this sad time. Our prayers are with them.
UDM Secretary General
