ANC Western Cape mourns the passing on Cde Siphiwo Nditha

01 November 2015

The ANC in the Western Cape lowers its revolutionary banner for the late Comrade Siphiwo Nditha, who, after sustaining Injuries and enduring for the past 12 months at a Hospital, passed away Wednesday, 28th October 2015, in Cape Town.

Cde Nditha was a champion for not only those who loved and cherished our beloved organisation, the ANC, but he was also unwavering in his confidence in the ability of the organisation, the ability of branches of the ANC to lead and influence local community issues, and in this regard, he led by example. Nditha dedicated his life to realising all the goals and aspirations of the ANC, persuaded that despite the momentary challenges, it is only the ANC that possess the popular mandate and capacity to make real, the dreams of a more inclusive and progressive organisation.

But to those close to him, who ache with his passing, His family, know Nditha by the other titles he held: Father. Brother. Husband. Uncle to his younger nieces and nephews, and yet many knew him as a colleague, a mentor, and above all, a friend. To all these, the ANC mourns with them in this unfortunate time.

Nditha sustained an Injury after being attacked at an ANC meeting in Ward 96 in the Dullar Omar region, Western Cape.

To be injured in a space where you are supposed to be protected would have broken a lesser man. But not Nditha. In him we see the true ANC values: Love and respect of our movement, patience, hope and the indomitable spirit;

Even in his most unfortunate injury, he did not surrender to self-pity and regret; As the ANC, we will however not rest until these rouge elements, who seek to take advantage of the openness of our organisation and bring in thuggery.

Siphiwo Nditha was a former Deputy Chairperson of the ANC Branch in Ward 96. He is also former Secretary of Albertina Sisulu SACP Branch.

As the ANC we send our warm condolences to the Nditha family at this difficult time.
