JOHANNESBURG - A memorial service was held in Randburg in honour of the late Deputy Minister in the Presidency, Hlengiwe Mkhize.
Mkhize died from cancer aged 69 last Thursday.
African National Congress Treasurer-General Paul Mashatile described her as a phenomenal woman.
"Death has robbed us of a cadre who exhibited some of the finest qualities required by our movement causing us to shiver in the cold and dark," he said.
"We will always remember comrade Hlengiwe as a humble and dependable servant of the people of South Africa."
