The ANC said in a statement that it was saddened by the news.
“The loss of a life so young and promising is tragic and no parent deserves the pain of losing a child at the prime of her life. The ANC conveys its deepest condolences to the Mthembu family, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers in their time of grief,” acting national spokesperson, Dakota Legoete said in a statement.
