Indeed South Africa has lost a political giant in Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi. A powerful force she was. Unfortunately, her life was cut short due to her unstable health conditions. KaMagwaza-Msibi sadly passed away last early this week after battling with health issues including a stroke. Despite her ailing health, the leader of the National Freedom Party was at the forefront of dismantling the patriarchy.
NFP founder and leader Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi is being laid to rest in Ulundi on Saturday. She is receiving a Special Provincial Official funeral as declared by President Cyril Ramaphosa. There are many questions as to why Ramaphosa declared kaMagwaza-Msibi’s send off a state funeral when he failed to do so with Former MKMVA veteran, Kebby Maphatsoe. “What’s the difference between Kebby Maphatsoe and Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi because as far as I know both were former Deputy Ministers? Why Zanele is receiving a State funeral but Kebby Maphatsoe didn’t? Why is everything factional,” a Twitter user asked.
During the funeral, Kamagwaza-Msibi’s husband, Mandla Msibi thanked his wife for respecting him. He hailed her for being a hard worker even in the midst of health challenges. The NFP leader was hailed as a true “Imbokodo”!
Meanwhile, Rasta the artist has paid his last respect by sketching a portrait of kaMagwaza-Msibi, and as usual, he fumbled. It’s about time Rasta stopped disrespecting departed giants though.
KaMagwaza-Msibi’s death has come as a huge blow to the nation and her family. Uzalo Actress Gugu Gumede had to take a break from the SABC 1 popular show following the death of her mother, KaMagwaza-Msibi who lost her life at the Durban hospital on Monday, 06 September 2021. Zanele kaMaGwaza-Msibi was service delivery personified. She was a legend! She was indeed imbokodo. May her revolutionary soul rest in peace.
