We have learnt with shock of the untimely passing of the AmaXhosa King Mpendulo Zwelonke Sigcawu. His death is a terrible loss for the Xhosa Nation and South Africa.

King Zwelonke was an outspoken and independent individual who did not shy away from expressing his opinions – especially when things were not right in our country.

On behalf of the United Democratic Movement and myself, I express our condolences with his family and the Xhosa people.

May his soul rest in peace.
