The IFP in Gauteng has learned with shock and sadness of the tragic passing of the MEC of Economic Development, Mr. Nkonsiphendule Kolisile.

 

For the IFP in the province the untimely passing is a loss to the entire Gauteng Provincial Government in particular and the nation of South Africa at large."

 

"MEC Kolisile is deserving of all our praises. He was constantly a true professional and dedicated to his duties. He will be sorely missed by the entire nation, said IFP Caucus Leader in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, Bonginkosi Dhlamini.

 

Dhlamini added that the IFP in Gauteng mourns the loss of this servant of the people who had just began on his journey and promised to be a great leader to the citizens of Gauteng.

 

"He was not simply a MEC, but his life's work was entirely dedicated for this country he loved. His ability to effortlessly work together with opposition parties in the Gauteng Legislature proved his non dogmatism and candidness to work for the good of the province," said Dhlamini.

 

"On behalf of the IFP in Gauteng we would like to convey our sincerest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues who were still expecting more from this leader of a rare breed. May God comfort them during this difficult time and give them courage to celebrate the legacy that this late stalwart soldier leaves behind," he concluded
