Sadness: Mzansi loses another special legend

Lindiwe discussing Feminism, Friendship, and Politics with Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Ambassador.

Lindiwe Mabuza, a former South African High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, has died. With tremendous sadness, we announce the death of our matriarch, Ambassador Lindiwe Mabuza. She died quietly this afternoon, Monday, December 6, 2021, surrounded by her beloved family.

Lindiwe Mabuza was an extraordinary South African politician, diplomat, poet, professor, journalist, and cultural activist. She was an anti-apartheid activist who later went on to serve her nation as a member of South Africa's first democratically elected parliament. She subsequently went on to become a respected diplomat.

South Africans are already sending sympathy messages and paying respect to the late great. Bantu Holomisa has also paid his respects. "In memory of Ambassador Lindiwe Mabuza." My heartfelt sympathies go out to her family and ANC. When I visited Washington, DC in the late 1980s, she would engage me in conversation. Good luck, my sister. You were a consummate diplomat. "May your soul rest in peace," remarked Holomisa.

Lindiwe Mabuza will be remembered as a great liberation warrior, diplomat, cultural activist, and a woman many were proud to call'mama.' She cared for and worked for her nation. She was 83 years old at the time. May she rest in peace now.
