Dumisa Ntuli, spokesperson for the ANC in Gauteng, has died.

“The African National Congress in Gauteng province is shocked and deeply saddened by the passing away of comrade Dumisa Ntuli. Comrade Dumisa died in a car accident near his home in Albertsdal, Ekurhuleni in the early hours of this morning,” the ANC said in a statement.

Ntuli “cut his political teeth” as one of the founding members of the Congress of South African Students (Cosas) in 1979.

“He served the organisation in various capacities including as regional executive committee member in the East Rand.”

“After having dedicated his time to the mobilisation and conscientising of learners under the tutelage of Cosas, Comrade Dumisa studied for a degree at the University of Witwatersrand, where again he associated with and joined the progressive structures of South African Students Congress (Sasco).”

Ntuli was appointed spokesperson of National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) after completing his studies.

He later joined the office of the ANC chief whip in the City of Johannesburg as a manager before taking up his position at the ANC communications unit in Gauteng.

“His unassuming, courteous and kindly nature touched all those who were fortunate to meet him and for this, amongst his many other noble qualities, he will be sorely missed,” the ANC said.
