Johannesburg - The late United Christian Democratic Party (UCDP) leader Mavis Matladi was passionate about serving her party and displayed enormous commitment to her work, the ANC said on Monday.

"She will be remembered for her contribution to the campaign for the restoration of moral and ethical values in our society," the office of the chief whip said.

"[We extend our] heartfelt condolences and sympathy to her family, friends, and colleagues."

Matladi, 53, died at Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg on Friday morning. She was admitted to the hospital on November 12 with breathing problems.

She was elected as the UCDP's leader in January after the expulsion of its founder Lucas Mangope, who governed Bophuthatswana from 1977 until 1994, when the homelands were scrapped.
