Johannesburg - The Young Communist League of South Africa said Dr Molefi Sefularo made a huge contribution in reforming South Africa's healthcare system.

National spokesperson Gugu Ndima said on Monday that the league was saddened by Sefularo's death.

Sefularo, the deputy minister of health, died just after 13:00 on Monday in a car accident in Pretoria West.

"His profound and unequivocal commitment to South Africa resonates well in his resume and the immense contribution to the transforming of the healthcare system," said Ndima.

"May his family take comfort in knowing that he was part of a team that committed to ensuring that the majority of South Africans will have access to quality healthcare and work vigorously in fighting the HIV/Aids pandemic."

Ndima said even in Sefularo's absence his work ethic would continue to showcase itself toward the World Cup.

"We send our heart-felt condolences to his family, colleagues and fellow comrades," he said.
