The news of her death sent shockwaves throughout the country.

Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi, the second-in-command who’d publicly challenged one of SA’s oldest serving MPs and former IFP leader prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, had passed away.

The National Freedom Party leader, who was a long-standing IFP member before forming the splinter NFP in 2011, died from cardiac arrest on 5 September at the age of 59. She had not been active in public life for some time after suffering from a stroke that reportedly left her with speech and mobility difficulties.
