Ms Thandi Nontenja

The United Democratic Movement Women’s Organisation (UDEMWO) expresses its deepest condolences to the family, friends, colleagues and party of the late National Freedom Party Founding President, Ms Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi.

South Africa has lost one of its inspirational leaders, who walked where most would not have dared and, in a time, when it was not fashionable to see a woman in a high leadership position. She was a strong and fierce woman.
She left her footprints on women leadership when she founded her own party and left a visible mark in KwaZulu-Natal when she was the Mayor of the Zululand District Municipality and ascended to Parliament.

UDEMWO will remember this powerhouse; this fearless lioness for her extraordinary way and we commit ourselves to take the baton and lead from the front as Ms Mama Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi had done.

We will keep her family in our prayers during these trying times.

Lala Uphumle Ngoxolo Njinji, Mandondo, Yengwayo!
