The management and staff of ETHICORE are saddened and shocked by the announcement by the Office of the African National Congress (ANC) Chief Whip in Parliament (Dr. Mathole Motshekga), of the tragic and untimely death of ANC Member of Parliament, Mandlenkosi (Mandla) Enock Mbili, who is reported to have died in a car accident yesterday.
Mr. Mbili joined Parliament`s National Assembly in 2006, representing his constituency of Hibberdene in KwaZulu-Natal. He participated in a number of parliamentary committees, including portfolio committee on finance and recently, the standing committee on public accounts (Scopa) – which he also served as Whip. Previously, Mr. Mbili served as chairperson of the ANC`s Kwa Dabeka branch in Kwa Zulu Natal from 1990 to 1994. From 1999 to 2003, he served in the Regional Executive Committee (REC) and the Regional Working Committee (RWC) of that province`s Lower Region.
The management and staff of ETHICORE are humbled to have had the opportunity to have engaged the late Mr. Mbili during his tenure as a member of Parliament’s Standing Committee on Finance in particular. We extend our deepest and hearfelt condolences to his family, friends and fellow comrades in the African National Congress.
We hope that Mr. Mbili’s replacement in the National Assembly will embody and live up the values, ethos and legacy espoused him, especially his humility and willingness to engage in deep and constructive dialogue, his attention to detail and his strong spirit of Parliamentary activism.
Hamba Kahle! May his soul rest in peace.
The management and staff, ETHICORE Consulting and Advisory Solutions.
