South Africa: ANC Statement On the Passing of Alpheus Moseri

press release

The African National Congress has learnt with sadness the passing of the Veteran and Stalwart, Comrade Alpheus Moseri (69) from Ephraim Mogale sub-region, after the centennial lecture in Vhembe Region of Limpopo. It is unfortunate that this took place after a successful event that honored the legendary Nelson Mandela. The circumstances surrounding his death are still a subject of investigation.

The ANC structures have already visited the family and we will through our province liaise with the family in terms of support that we will render to the family during this time of need. Comrade Alpheus who belonged to ward 13 branch in Maradi village, Moutse West has a proven track record of activism in the mass democratic movement and the ANC. It is not surprising that he was amongst those who wanted to honour President Mandela by attending a lecture on his role and legacy in the ANC.

To his family and kin, we want to convey our heartfelt condolences on their loss and want to reassure them that the ANC is deeply affected as we also have lost a valuable Veteran and Stalwart. We call on our members to emulate his exemplary commitment and vindicate his commitment by ensuring that the ideals he stood for are realized.
