The wife of Jackson Mthembu, who used to be a minister in the presidency, has died. A family member, Artwel Mthembu, said that Thembi Mthembu died at a Pretoria hospital on Thursday morning. “She had been sick for a few weeks, and she died this morning in the hospital.” As we lost Jackson last year, he said, “This has just opened up a lot of wounds.” The former minister died of Covid-19-related problems early last year, and he didn’t live to see it.Jackson Mthembu and his wife, Thembi, are seen on the red carpet at the State of the Nation Address in Cape Town.
A lot of people went on social media to send their condolences to the family of the person who died. In a post on Facebook, Mlibo Qoboshiyane, a deputy speaker in the Eastern Cape legislature, said: Thembi, the wife of the late ANC minister and NEC member Cde Jackson Mthembu, died this morning at around 6 a.m. Our thoughts and prayers are with the children, family, and friends. Indeed, death starts with birth.

People just learned that Jackson Mthembu’s wife, the great leader and friend he was, died this morning. She was a good person, and we pray that her perfect soul will rest in peace. It was a sad day in South Africa because the Mthembu family had already been through so much, said Charles Awuzie on Facebook.
Kwezi, their first daughter, killed herself in Cape Town in 2019. Before this week, Jackson Mthembu died, and today, his widow left this world to be with the Lord. In his job as a politician, Jackson Mthembu had to give up his family and everything else in order to serve his country. I hope the country remembers what he did for the country. He said that his heart goes out to the Mthembu family.See the source image
