It is with sadness that we learnt earlier today of the passing of Minister of Environmental Affairs, Ms Edna Molewa.
Ms Molewa valiantly fought our environmental struggles, including
playing a significant role in leading South Africa’s war on rhino
poaching, both locally and internationally.
“It is notable that she departs today on 22 September, a day which is
also recognised as World Rhino Day. As SACC, we would like to convey
our sincerest condolences to Minister Molewa’s family, the government,
and the governing party,” said Bishop Malusi Mpumlwana, General
Secretary of the South African Council of Churches (SACC).
May her soul Rest In Everlasting Peace.
