MP’s memorial service

2014-08-22 00:00

A MEMORIAL service for IFP MP Mario Oriani-Ambrosini will be held in Durban on Sunday.

The 53-year old politician died last Sunday after a long battle with terminal lung cancer. His family has since confirmed that he committed suicide.

The service will take place at 2 pm at the St Thomas Church (off Stephen Dlamini Road) in Musgrave.

Oriani-Ambrosini first became a Member of Parliament in 2009, Sapa reported. Earlier this year, after the May 7 elections, a very frail Oriani-Ambrosini had to lift himself out of his wheelchair with difficulty a year after announcing his diagnosis, to read the oath of Parliament.
