Municipal Bereavement

It is with great sadness and shock to have lost the Speaker of Umzimkhulu Local Municipality, Cllr. Khaya Thobela in such a barbaric manner. He was brutally attacked at his homestead in Mfundweni Village of Umzimkhulu, on Thursday evening and eventually passed away on Sunday while in hospital.

"This inhuman, cowardice and merciless assassination of our Speaker did not ONLY rob us a Speaker of the Council but it has robbed us a true leader. As a Speaker of the Council, Cllr.Thobela always ensured accountability, transparency, respect, fruitful engagements during the council proceedings therefore his legacy will forever remain in our minds. Cllr. Thobela worked tirelessly to ensure that the community of Umzimkhulu and surroundings also benefit from the promises of the Government of the day. Ngwane, as he was affectionately known, played a huge role towards the successes of our municipality. His role in the country had been characterised by humble, love, respect and commitment. This is indeed a great loss to the people of Umzimkhulu as a whole. We wish to extend our sincere condolences to the Thobela family and entire Umzimkhulu." said the deeply sadden Mayor of Umzimkhulu Local Municipality, Cllr. Mphuthumi Mpabanga.

On the killing of Cllr. Khayalethu Mgcwaba

Early this week, Umzimkhulu has been shaken by the cowardice and brutal killing of former PR. Councillor Khayalethu Mgcwaba, at his house in Machunwinini Village (Ward 18) of Umzimkhulu. 

' As the leadership of Umzimkhulu Municipality, we are deeply saddened by this merciless killing. It indeed happened in few weeks after similar incident happened to our Speaker Cllr. Khaya Thobela therefore the community of this rural based municipality was still vulnerable. I would like to call upon all stakeholders to remain vigilantly calm, at this time, and further assist the law enforcement agencies with whatever information at their disposal. 

Cde. Mgcwaba, will always be remembered for his tireless commitment on changing the lives of the ordinary people hence he remained active even though he was no longer a Councillor. This leader, clearly understood what it means to be deployed in Government by such gigantic organisation as the African National Congress (ANC) hence he was BEC Member in Chris Hani Branch. His role will forever be missed in this organisation.

I would like to extent words of sincere condolences to the Mgcwaba family and express words of gratitude for them borrowing us their son, a father, a husband and a brother. “said the Mayor of Umzimkhulu Municipality Cllr. Mphuthumi Mpabanga.

Accompanied by the Chris Hani Branch of the ANC, Cllr. Mpabanga led Municipal Councillors to visit the family. Date of the funeral is not yet hence post-mortem is in progress.
