House Chair, I move without notice:
That the House-
1) notes with sadness the tragic death of Sergeant Bongani Xakata, who was gunned down at his home in Lingelethu West, Khayelitsha, on the evening of 30 October 2019;
2) further notes that since 2009, Sergeant Xakata was a much loved, respected and disciplined member of the uniformed protection and security services at Parliament, having previously served in the South African National Defence Force;
3) condemns this callous attack in the strongest possible terms and trusts that the perpetrators
will be speedily apprehended and brought to justice; and
4) expresses its deepest condolences to his wife, Ms Lumka and six children, his broader family, friends and colleagues at Parliament and wishes them comfort at this sad time.
