Covid-19: ANC MP Nomvuzo Francisca Shabalala Dies

ANC MP Nomvuzo Francisca Shabalala dies of Covid-19

South Africa, Cape Town – ANC Member of Parliament Nomvuzo Francisca Shabalala has died and according to reports, it’s due to a Covid-19-related illness on Saturday.

The presiding officers of Parliament, led by National Assembly Speaker Thandi Modise and National Council of Provinces Chairperson Amos Masondo, have offered their condolences to Shabalala’s family and friends.

Shabalala, an African National Congress representative in the National Assembly, joined Parliament after the 2019 elections and served on the portfolio committee on basic education and the joint committee on ethics and members’ interest, they said in a statement issued by Parliament.

“Despite being a relatively new parliamentarian, Ms. Shabalala swiftly familiarised herself with the workings and complex systems of the legislature. She was diligent and hard-working, particularly in the committees she served where she helped bolster oversight over the country’s basic education system and ethical conduct of public representatives.”

The presiding officers said the continuing and unprecedented loss of human life due to the Covid-19 pandemic was distressing, and once again underscored the indiscriminate nature of the virus.
