Statement by Minister Debbie Schafer on the passing of MEC Grizelda Boniwe Cjiekella Lecholo

By Debbie Shafer, WC Minister of Education.

I wish to express my sadness at the news of the sudden passing of my colleague in the Northern Cape, MEC Grizelda Boniwe Cjiekella Lecholo.

In the short time that I knew her, she had to deal with some very difficult issues in her province, but was always cheerful and friendly.  It is a tragedy to lose someone so young.

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