Comment on this story

KwaZulu-Natal - The KwaZulu-Natal legislature's longest-serving member, Samuel Mtetwa, died on Thursday, the African National Congress in the province said.

“Comrade Mtetwa was a committed member of the party, whose life was defined by his continued activism and dedication,” spokesman Senzo Mkhize said in a statement.

“He impacted positively on many lives in this province.”

Mtetwa died from natural causes in a Durban hospital in the early hours of the morning. He had served in the provincial legislature since 1994 and became deputy chief whip in 2004.

In 2007, he took over as chairperson of committees, a position he retained until 2009. Mtetwa was also a member of the provincial rules, programming, and disciplinary committees. - Sapa
