It is with great sadness that the CIC learned of the passing of Hon. Edna Molewa, late Minister of Environmental Affairs of the Republic of South Africa on September 22, following complications of Legionnaires’ disease.
We stand with the international community in expressing our sincerest condolences to the family of Hon. Molewa, to her friends and colleagues, members of her church and community, and to all those who knew her.
In the words of her family “South Africa had lost a great leader: an activist, a patriot and a revolutionary who has been called to her Maker, leaving us bereft.”
We wish strength and courage to all those affected by this tragic loss. May she rest in peace.
