Parliament - The ANC has paid tribute to former Deputy Minister of Minerals and Energy Bavelile Hlongwa and described her as a dynamic young leader.
Hlongwa died in a car crash when she was returning from the 75th anniversary of the ANCYL in Limpopo on Friday.
According to Timeslive, Hlongwa and four other people were run over and killed by a truck after the deputy minister’s car stopped to assist at another accident.
The ANC said on Saturday that Hlongwa was one of the members of the ANC who were going to be considered for co-option in the National Executive Committee.
“The last National Working Committee of our organisation (which carries out the decisions and instructions of the NEC and manages the work of the ANC in between NEC meetings) had resolved to submit the name of comrade BV as one the names recommended for co-option into the NEC of the ANC,” said ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule.
