COSATU mourns the death of Mandoza

19 September 2016

The Congress of South African Trade Unions joins millions of people in South Africa to mourn the death of the music Mduduzi Edmund "Mandoza" Tsabalala, who passed away yesterday after a long illness from cancer.

We send our heartfelt condolences to his family, colleagues and friends. This music and cultural icon will be sorely missed and greatly remembered for his dedication and the passion he had for his craft.

Mandoza was not just a music legend and a hero to many working class people and black people but his music transcended the racial barriers and he had a substantial following across the country.

He inspired many people from the township to liberate themselves from poverty with his lyrics. He gallantly fought against cancer and inspired many people around the country, who are struggling with their own ailments.

We hope that a new generation of musicians will keep his legacy alive and carry the baton going forward. We will all greatly miss this legend.
