South Africa: Jackson Mthembu's Daughter, Khwezi, to Be Laid to Rest

The daughter of ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu is to be laid to rest on Saturday in KaNyamazane in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga.

Mthembu tweeted on Wednesday morning that his eldest daughter, Khwezi, took her own life at their parliamentary village home in Cape Town.

"We are in deep pain. We don't know what led her to take her own life at such a tender age of 25 years," he posted on Twitter.

He expressed his "deepest gratitude to all who have supported" his family.

"We thank our colleagues in the ANC, as led by President Cyril Ramaphosa, the executive leadership of Parliament, as led by comrade Baleka Mbete and comrade Thandi Modise, our colleagues from all opposition parties, the media, as well as all South Africans who have sent their condolences to the family," said Mthembu.

Khwezi's funeral service is expected to start with a morning prayer at the Mthembu family residence in KaNyamazane location at 07:00 before proceeding to KaNyamazane Stadium for the main service.

The funeral procession will then move to the Nelspruit Cemetery for the burial.
