The DA in KwaZulu-Natal extends our deepest condolences to the family of the late Dr. Frank Mdlalose. He was the first Premier of the newly renamed KwaZulu-Natal province.
The DA enjoyed a good working relationship with Mdlalose, during his time as the Premier because he strived to include all parties in the post-apartheid dispensation. He included the DA in his provincial Cabinet under the position of Chairman of Education.
Dr. Mdlalose served the province and his counter well during his tenure and his passing is a great loss.
We send our heartfelt condolences to his party, the IFP, and his family, Ulale ngokuthula Nyanda wephahla. The DA would also like to wish a speedy recovery to Mama Mdlalose who is reported to be in the hospital.
