Parliament– Parliament’s Presiding Officers are saddened at the unexpected passing away of Member of Parliament Ms Nokhaya Adelaide Mnisi, after a short illness.
Ms Mnisi became a member of Parliament in 2009 and has served the national legislature in many capacities. Most recently she served on the Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs, the Portfolio Committee on Defence and Military Veterans and the Joint Standing Committee on Defence. She was also a member of the Multiparty Women’s Caucus.
Ms Mnisi diligently carried out Parliament’s constitutional obligations – exercising fearless oversight over Executive action, law making and enhancing public participation in the work of Parliament.
She also served her constituency in Mpumalanga with dedication and ensured their challenges and aspirations found expression on the agenda of Parliament.
Our heartfelt condolences go to the family and friends of Ms Mnisi and to her political party.
