KZN MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Sipho Hlomuka has expressed his shock and sadness at the passing of the Deputy Mayor of Ndwedwe local municipality, Cllr Nokulunga Esther Blose.
Cllr Blose passed away yesterday at the hospital after a short illness. She had served diligently as a member of the Executive Committee, and also as the chair of the Human Resources Committee. She was patient, hardworking and her passing leaves a huge void in the sphere of local government.
“As the sphere of local government in KZN, we have lost yet another leader of our people. We mourn with the Ndwendwe community and the family of municipalities under the Ilembe district the loss they have suffered. During this difficult time, the family and those who worked closely with Cllr Blose remain in our thoughts and prayers,” said Hlomuka.
