The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) mourns the untimely death of its Western Cape Provincial Secretary, Comrade Mncedisi David Mbolekwa.

Comrade Mbolekwa was one of the principled leaders of our union; a dedicate unionist who remained very loyal to our cause and struggle for workers’ rights.

He passed away last night, aged 51, and had been serving as the as the POPCRU Provincial Secretary since 1999, and also as the African National Congress (ANC) branch Treasurer of the Anton Fransch (Ward 31).

POPCRU lowers its banner in honour of this very humble servant of the people, and a role model to many. We salute him for the role played in our struggles for the promotion of justice for all, and the tireless efforts he has contributed.
Our most heartfelt thoughts are with his wife Nomfuneko and children Nomandla, Sisanda, Olwethu and Mihlali in these dark hours. We also convey our deepest and most sincere condolences to the POPCRU family, friends and the entire liberation movement in the Western Cape Province in particular and the country at large.

We shall fondly remember him for his lively character, a humble activist who played an important role in the new terrain of democratic politics. His genius was more evident when leading the collective interests of our membership, especially during difficult times.

Comrade Mbolekwa’s contribution to the struggle will forever be remembered as an example to be emulated by future generations.
