ANC MP Jackson Mthembu has paid a touching tribute to his daughter, Khwezi Mthembu, who committed suicide earlier this year. 

In two separate tweets on what would have been her 25th birthday on Sunday, Mthembu shared a picture of Khwezi, captioned, “You will always be in our hearts, Khwezi, you will always be loved.”

In another post, he shared a picture of family and friends who gathered to remember her. 

In March, Mthembu confirmed that Khwezi had died at their Pelican parliamentary village home in Cape Town. “We are in deep pain. We don't know what led her to take her own life."

South Africans rallied behind the politician.
