The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said it appreciated Albertina Sisulu’s selflessness and would miss her.
“The National Union of Mineworkers dips its flag in honour of struggle veteran MaSisulu, and appreciates the role she played and the selflessness she displayed in our society. She will be sadly missed,” said spokesperson Lesiba Seshoka.
Sisulu, a former president of the ANC Women’s League, died at her home in Linden, Johannesburg, last night.
She was watching television while her family prepared supper.
The NUM sent condolences to her family, the ANC and “the entire South African nation”.
“And may the many citizens of our wonderful country walk in her footsteps and selflessly contribute towards progress in our society,” it said.
