Parliament, Thursday, 8 July 2021 - The Presiding Officers of Parliament, led by Speaker of the National Assembly Ms Thandi Modise and Chairperson of the NCOP Mr Amos Masondo, have learnt with shock and sadness about the untimely passing of Mr Cameron Mackenzie due to Covid-19 related diseases last night.

Mr Mackenzie joined Parliament in 2014 as a member of the Democratic Alliance in the National Assembly. He served in the Portfolio Committee on Telecommunications and Postal services from 2014 -2019 and the Portfolio Committee on Communications from 2019-2021.

"It is saddening that once again, we are losing one of our own to this vicious disease. In Mr Mackenzie, Parliament has lost a diligent, dedicated and passionate public representative who contributed immensely to the oversight and law-making programme of Parliament. He used his knowledge, skills and expertise to strengthening not only the committee's work but the Constitutional function of the national legislature,” said the Presiding Officers.

Parliament extends heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and his political home, the Democratic Alliance.
