Sisulu a shining light, says Holomisa
Johannesburg - United Democratic Movement (UDM) leader Bantu Holomisa called Albertina Sisulu a "shining light in the struggle for liberation", in a tribute to her on Friday.
"We are eternally indebted to her for her monumental contribution to the freedom and democracy we now enjoy," Holomisa said.
Sisulu, 92, died on Thursday night while watching television at her home in Linden, Johannesburg.
Holomisa extended condolences to her family, and to the ANC.
Sisulu was a former deputy president of the ANC Women's League. Her husband Walter Sisulu, who died in 2003, was a deputy president of the party.
She was also a founder member of the United Democratic Front, an anti-apartheid movement that worked towards the downfall of apartheid while the ANC was banned.
Holomisa was a member of the ANC before breaking away to form the UDM.
Holomisa said: "... We must hold tight to the teachings and memories of her unselfish concern for the welfare of others.
"Through mama Sisulu, the nation had the privilege of witnessing hard work, discipline and leadership par excellence."
