Nkosikhona Mdlalose, the KwaZulu-Natal ANC Women’s League chairperson in the Mzala Nxumalo region, died in a car crash on her way home from the party’s national conference in Johannesburg. 

ANC regional secretary Ntokozo Nxumalo confirmed the incident that took place on Tuesday evening outside eMkhondo (Piet Retief).

According to Nxumalo, Mdlalose was killed with regional member Mpendulo Khumalo. Another member was seriously injured in the "head-on" collision.

“We went to see our member who is seriously injured and is in hospital. We are now on our way to the families of Mdlalose and Khumalo so we can pass on our condolences. It is a very sad to lose members in such a way, but we will comment further in due course,” he said.

Nxumalo said other regional leaders had already visited the families.

Meanwhile, condolences are pouring in on social media for the ANC members.
