It is indeed sad news, His untimely death will be greatly felt by many people who regarded him as role model. And those who knew him says he was an astute Politician.
The year 2021 has really started on wrong foot: we are only in the second week of January; and already South Africans have lost one of the greatest people that were really helping to rebuild many South African Communities. South African Political landscape will never be the same without him. A very heart felt messages were sent by well known South African political figures and as well as ordinary South Africans.
Kgabo Hlonyana who was EFF Deputy Chairperson Of Johannesburg has sadly passed away. And Herman Mashaba who is widely known across the country, was one of the people who reacted to the passing of Kgabo Hlonyana’s passing: and he described the kind of person kgabo Hlonyana was.
Here is what Herman Mashaba had to say ” My deepest condolences to @effjoburg & Cllr Hlonyana’s family. Politics aside, I worked with him in the City & knew him to be man that cared deeply about his community. He was an examplery public civil servant, committed to the people of Johannesburg. May he rest in peace.
