SACP shocked at former spokesman’s death

The South African Communist Party on Friday expressed shock and sadness at the death of its former spokesperson Kaizer Mohau.

“The SACP expresses its message of solidarity and sincere condolences to the family of Mohau for the sore loss suffered,”the party said in a statement.

Mohau was found dead at his home in North West province on Thursday, after he was not seen for two consecutive days before his death.

“Investigations by all relevant authorities are important both into his disappearance and death, and will assist the family and the SACP to know what happened and take appropriate steps to find closure.”

“When he died he was working as the African National Congress (ANC) sub-regional organiser. Comrade Kaizer Mohau previously worked in the media department of the SACP with dedication.”

He was among the first party members post-1994 who were sent to Cuba to study.

“He will also be remembered for his previous role as the spokesperson of the Friends of Jacob Zuma Campaign,”the SACP said.

Mohau was born on March 21, 1972, in Ikageng, Potchefstroom, North West. He is survived by three sisters, a brother, and three children.
