There have been many words of sympathy for Thabo Masebe, the now-deceased Gauteng Premier who worked closely with Thabo Masebe.
Masebe's family issued a statement saying, "The Masebe Family regrets to inform the tragic and unexpected loss of our beloved brother, father, and uncle, Mr Thabo Maemo Masebe". In the wake of their tragedy, they also requested an air of secrecy.
On Monday, Premier David Makhura paid a visit to the Masebe family at their Kempton Park mansion to express his condolences.
His many responsibilities in communications, including as a spokeswoman for Kgalema Motlanthe's deputy, were much praised.
It was Makhura's honor to serve under the late acting director general who was regarded by many in the communications community as a towering figure of integrity and dependability.
It came as a shock to many when it was announced that Masebe had passed away. It is believed that he had suffered an asthma attack in 2020, which he survived, but it was a more recent one that proved fatal.
Arrangements for the deceased's funeral have not yet been made public.
