IFP sends condolences to Faith Gasa

May 17, 2005

The Chairperson of the IFP Women's Brigade, Mrs Lynette Zwane, today expressed condolences to Mrs Faith Gasa, IFP KwaZulu-Natal MPL on the death of her husband Dr Enoch Gasa, 61, who died yesterday afternoon.

Mrs Zwane said:

"I, together with all women of the IFP, were moved to deep sadness when we heard this news. God bless and protect you and your family in this time of shock, mourning and sadness, my dear sister. We all knew of your deep devotion to your husband and we know that you will miss him. He was a great man. A man who encouraged you to develop to your full potential as women and as a leader, setting you free in turn to help young women develop to their full potential under your leadership and guidance. He will always be remembered and honoured.

Know that we, your family and friends, are right beside you in this time. We share in your loss and we will carry this awful burden together with you. I know that you will draw comfort from the knowledge that your dear husband is at peace in his final resting place. God bless you, your children and the rest of your family. God comfort you and give you peace my dear sister." Details for the memorial and service, which will take place on Thursday in Empangeni and the funeral service, which will most probably be held on Saturday, will be released soon.
