Message Of Condolence And Tribute To The “Mother Of Azania “ Ma Zondeni Veronica Sobukwe From The Mec Of Sport Arts And Culture Ms Bongiwe Mbinqo-Gigaba

The MEC for Sport , Arts and Culture Ms Bongiwe Mbinqo-Gigaba would hereby like to take this opportunity to convey her deepest sympathy and condolences to the Sobukwe family on the passing of Ms Zondeni Veronica Sobukwe , the wife of the late Professor Mangaliso Robert Sobukwe who was the founder of the PAC .

Like many of her peers who were affected by the socio-political impact and planning patterns of the apartheid regime, Ma Sobukwe sacrificed her time, leisure and family in the fight against apartheid.

Ma Zondeni Veronica Sobukwe played an indelible role in both the liberation and development of our country and to her and her generation we owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude. She leaves behind a proud legacy of steadfastness, resilience and selfness for her exceptional and outstanding contribution and sacrifice to the liberation struggle.

Her legacy is engraved in the minds and societal fibre of our people and our nation which she served tirelessly and passionately.

Her deep understanding of the plight of the poor and her unwavering desire to play a role in achieving an equal society and eliminating poverty will be sorely missed by those who have worked with her.

She will be remembered for her tireless contribution in the fight against apartheid , her unwavering determination to serve her people and her commitment to the prosperity of our nation , and will be sorely missed.

At this hour of great loss, our thoughts are with her family, friends, comrades and the entire PAC family and all those who have been touched by her life.

The MEC for Sport , Arts and Culture Ms Bongiwe Mbinqo-Gigaba will be visiting the bereaved Sobukwe Family on the 21 August 2018 at 11h00 in Graaf Reinert to pay her respect to the family and all those close to Ma Sobukwe.
