ANC CONVEYS CONDOLENCES TO THE GARDEE FAMILY
The African National Congress(ANC) has learnt with sadness of the passing of Hillary Gardee the daughter of former Secretary-General of the Economic Freedom Fighters(EFF), Goldrich Gardee.
The painful circumstances of her death paints a disturbing picture of violence which is deeply embedded in our communities especially against women and children.
The ANC will continue to rally society against acts of gender based violence whenever they occur. We call on the South African Police Services,to fulfil its mandate rapidly and investigate the circumstances around this tragic moment in the Gardee family, to enable an effective and efficient prosecution by the NPA.
As the Gardee family come to terms with this tragic moment, we convey our deepest condolences to the family, friends and comrades.
We hope all peace loving South Africans will put them in their prayers and many others who are affected by violent acts of this nature.
