National Assembly: 14 April 2010
The news of the sudden death of the Hon Dr
Molefi Sefularo, former Deputy Minister of Health, came across to us
in the IFP with much shock, resentment and anguish, especially
because snatched from our midst is one of the most dedicated sons of
our country South Africa, at the prime of his life.
The IFP has had opportunity to work with Dr
Sefularo in Parliament and in Government, and has great respect for
his skills and leadership. His tragic death is a loss to us all.
Dr Sefularo was an accomplished scholar and
a dedicated servant of our nation, who always had the best interests
of the people of South Africa at heart.
We also pay tribute to the outstanding work
he has done in leading the fight against HIV and Aids in South
Africa. We are aware that during his tenure as the MEC for Health in
the North West and during the current term as the Deputy Minister of
Health, he was known for his passion, drive and dedication to
improve South Africa's ailing health system and to curb the spread
Away from the corridors of Parliament and
Government, Dr Sefularo was a man who was well-liked by many. He
was admired within the community for the work he did to raise the
standard of living of ordinary members of the community and in
particular, for his efforts to encourage the youth to acquire
education so that they could thereby equip themselves for the
service to the community and the nation.
Our country has indeed lost a formidable
leader and we mourn the loss of such a great South African.
The IFP extends its deepest condolences,
sympathy and support to the Sefularo family, his colleagues, friends
and members of the ANC. My God give them strength and consolation
at this difficult time. We pray that God gives him eternal rest; and
that light perpetually shines upon him.
I thank you.
