House Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes with sadness the passing on of the struggle veteran, Ntate Frank Sexwale, at the age of 97;
2) further notes that Ntate Frank Sexwale, who is the father of former Minister of Human Settlements, Comrade Tokyo Sexwale, was buried at Heroes Acre in Avalon Cemetery in Soweto on Saturday, 21 February 2015;
3) acknowledges that he is one of the few veterans who fought in the Second World War;
4) recognises that Ntate Sexwale and his generation ensured the successful defeat of the apartheid government and delivered political freedom to the nation as a whole;
5) believes that the departure of Ntate Sexwale is an immensely sad moment, as he remains one of the many compatriots who were prepared to pay the highest price for the liberation of South Africa and her people; and
