Modern, Growing, Successful Province

Condelences on Passing of Mayor of the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality and Reverend Obakeng Jakkals

As a Province we have been silenced by the death of two leaders and activists that have always committed themselves to the vision of building a prosperous society. They served Government, their communities and humanity in various capacities and their diligence, sacrifice, hard work and respect for others never went unnoticed.

The late Mr Roy Olyn a former Mayor of Kai! Garib Municipality and Speaker of the ZF Mgcawu District served as the Executive Mayor of the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality at the time of his passing. Reverend Obakeng Jakkals was a well-known public servant, religious and community leader from the Frances Baard District.  The Premier of the Northern Cape, Dr Zamani Saul, on behalf of the Provincial Government and the people of the Province expresses his heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, broader community as well as the ANC on their sad passing.

The passing of these two outstanding leaders is a great loss to the people of the Northern Cape Province as a whole. Their contribution to improving the lives of the communities they served will be remembered and will form part of the rich legacy they leave behind.
