The Democratic Alliance mourns the untimely passing of Gauteng Economic Development MEC Nkosiphendule Kolisile in a road accident in the early hours of Saturday morning.
His vehicle was reportedly making way for an ambulance when it hit a truck.
Kolisile was respected by all members and all parties in the Legislature for his intelligence, integrity and commitment.
He was a friend as well, and will be sorely missed.
It is really tragic that he was cut down so early before his great promise could be fulfilled.
We also mourn the deaths of his bodyguards Sergeant Tebogo Motsei and Constable Tshepo Jobo.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families and friends at this difficult time.
