The DA Bhisho caucus would like to send words of condolence to the family of King Maxhoba Sandile and to the House of Traditional Leaders for the passing away of their heroic King.

His death came as a shock to the people of the Eastern Cape. We knew him as a person who was not afraid to speak his mind when dealing with traditional leaders’ issues. He worked tirelessly to ensure that government recognizes the role and place of our traditions as much as possible. Our prayers and thoughts are with the King’s loved ones.
