EKURHULENI ANC WOMEN’S CAUCUS MOURNS THE DEATH OF Dr THANDI NDLOVU
26 August 2019
As we mark the tail of women’s month in August, Ekurhuleni ANC Women’s Caucus’ saddened by the passing away of Dr Thandi Ndlovu.
The renowned Dr was killed in an accident when her car lost control and collided head-onon weekend. She made her name in the construction business and served as the president of the Black Business Council for the Built Environment.
Dr Ndlovu proved to everyone that as woman it is possible to equally compete and conquer in the male dominated space. She will remain a beacon hope and inspiration to many. Just like Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela and many women who were and continue to be relentlesslymarginalized and faced by patriarchy in various economic and social space in sphere of our society.
This moment reminds us to soldier on and find comfort that despite many huddlesfaced by South African women it is not all lost and there is hope.
Ndlovu launched Motheo Construction in 1999. The company acquired a grade 9 certificate level from the Construction Industry Development Board.
This inspires us to focus on the challenge ahead and it is not yet Uhuru. Dr Ndlovu is a symbol of hope.
As Ekurhuleni ANC women’s, we fully understand that women play an important role in the society. It therefore important we fight against patriarchy and misogyny, and focus on women emancipation so that we can all to continue building a society and its institutions.
We appreciate the ANC led government for the great wisdom in providing leadership in the programme of women emancipation. It is only over the last three or four decades that women's role in the history of South Africa has, belatedly, been givenNOTABLE recognition. Previously the history of women's political organization, their struggle for freedom from oppression, for community rights and, importantly, for gender equality, was largely ignored in history.
ANC Caucus in Ekurhuleni welcomed the State of the City Address delivered by the Executive Mayor Cllr Mzwandile Masina at the Germiston Council Chamber in OR Tambo Government Precinct Civic Centre – Germiston on Wednesday, 18 March 2020.
