DA mourns loss of Gauteng MPL Dr Gavin Lewis

Helen ZilleĀ 

Leader of the DA

The Democratic Alliance (DA) mourns the loss of Gauteng MPL, Dr Gavin Lewis.

Dr Lewis passed away on Saturday morning, 27 July after a short illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends in this painful time.

Dr Lewis was a long standing member of the party and served as the DA’s spokesperson for Economic Development in the Gauteng Legislature.

He had a passion for the economy, and was a regular contributor to economic policy debates inside the DA and in public.

He was an dedicated public servant who persevered and maintained his constant good spirits, even while battling with his illness.

His contributions and dedication to building our democracy will be sorely missed; both within the party and greater South African politics.
