Statement by Minister Debbie Schafer on the passing of MEC Thembi Nwedamutswu

Debbie Schafer

Western Cape Minister of Education

I wish to express my sadness at the news of the passing of my colleague in Limpopo, MEC Thembi Nwedamutswu.

She inherited a very difficult task on her appointment as MEC for education in that province.  In the short time that I knew her, she seemed to be quietly determined to improve education there.

My sincere condolences go to her family, friends, colleagues and the ANC.
