The minister in the South African presidency was confirmed dead some days ago after suffering from COVID-19 complications.
Taking to his verified social media handle on Twitter, the head of state shared some photos that captured some of the memorable moments and added the caption;
“Farewell my dear brother, my comrade and friend. Ulala ngoxolo Mvelase ka Guda! Rest in peace. #RIPJacksonMthembu“
This is the second post the president has made to honour the former statesman. In his first post, he wrote;
“It is with deep sorrow and shock that we announce that Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu passed away earlier today from COVID-related complications. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time of loss.
Minister Mthembu was an exemplary leader, an activist and life-long champion of freedom and democracy. He was a much-loved and greatly respected colleague and comrade, whose passing leaves our nation at a loss.
I extend my deepest sympathies to the Minister’s family, to his colleagues, comrades and many friends.”
