Durban - ANC chief whip in the KwaZulu-Natal provincial legislature Senzo Mkhize was an example of revolutionary dedication and commitment to real freedom, the party said on Saturday.

Mkhize is understood to have died on Friday following a long illness.

In a statement, the ANC caucus in KwaZulu-Natal Legislature said Mkhize was a dedicated member of the party who “knew nothing except working for the communities of our province”.

“We are all deeply saddened by the loss… [Mkhize] remains an example of revolutionary dedication and commitment to real freedom to all our people,” said deputy chief whip, Nontembeko Boyce.

Many whom he worked with in the ANC Youth League remember him for his efforts in organising ANC structures, the party said.

“When the ANC deployed him in parliament, comrade Mkhize came with a lot of vibrancy to ensure that the policies of our movement in parliament were communicated properly. He did his job diligently and with aplomb to ensure that ANC leads in the delivery of service to the poor,” Boyce recalled.

“Despite challenges of enormous responsibility given to him by the ANC, comrade Mkhize remained humble and never showed any signs of any frustration as he performed his duties as chief whip in the KZN Legislature.”

Mkhize joined the ANC caucus in the KwaZulu-Natal legislature in 2010 after being redeployed from the National Assembly. He was the chairperson for Sport and Recreation before being deployed as a deputy chief whip in 2012. 

In May 2014 he was deployed as a chief whip. 

He also served in various committees including Sport and Recreation, Community Safety, Transport, Agriculture, Rules, Oversight, Programming and Whips Forum. 

Representatives of the party on Saturday visited the family to pay their respects.
