There are some who object for to a better Africa and the better world in this House. Therefore, we must pardon their
ignorance to find lasting peace in the world. Hon Chair, I hereby move without notice:
That the Council-
1) notes with profound sadness of loss and grief the passing away of the AmaXhosa King, King Mpendulo Zwelonke Sigcawu last Thursday, 14 November 2019;
2) further notes that King Sigcawu will be remembered for his relentless quest for unity of our people across ethnic, racial, gender and social status for the common good for all and his selfless service to our people for a better future;
3) also notes that King Sigcawu lived and stood true to the fundamental African values of ubuntu and human solidarity without fail. By his deeds and lifestyle, he always saw himself as a humble servant of the people with unparalleled passion to uplift the poor, the vulnerable and the weakest; and
4) takes this opportunity to extend its heartfelt condolences to the family of the late King, the AmaXhosa Royal Palace and
the Eastern Cape House of Traditional Leaders and the entire nation. We share their loss and grief at this darkest hour.
Motion agreed to in accordance with section 65 of the Constitution.
