Parliament, Friday, 31 July 2020 – The Portfolio Committee on Tourism is saddened by the news of the passing of one of its members, Mr Zamuxolo Joseph Peter, after a short illness due to Covid-19.
Mr Peter who was driven by the objectives of non-racialism, no-sexist and united South Africa, joined Parliament as a Member of the National Assembly after the 2019 general elections. He served on the committee with dedication since his deployment to the committee after the establishment of the sixth Parliament.
The Chairperson of the committee, Mr Supra Mahumapelo, said: “One could always count on Zamuxolo Peter for assistance when the assistance is required, and he would go the extra mile to ensure that the objectives of the committee were met. I remember when a particular radio station was looking for a Nguni speaking person for a radio show on tourism in traditional areas, Mr Peter being committed to the transformation of tourism in villages, townships and small towns, stepped in and did a fine job of promoting the work of the committee.”
Mr Mahumapelo added: “One of his ideals was to ensure that we have corrupt free governance in South Africa, and that we, as Members of Parliament, exercise our oversight mandate and hold the government accountable for its delivery of services to the people.”
The committee send its heartfelt condolences to Mr Peter’s family, friends and his comrades. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
