“This is not a passing of an individual, but a premature departure of a representative of the great generation,” he said. The likes of Minister Mthembu come to pass this way once. In their way, they leave us the gifts of liberty and freedom.

Mthembu died from COVID-19 complications and was laid to rest on Sunday in his hometown, eMalahleni in Mpumalanga.
