DA mourns the passing of UDM MPL, Mncedisi Filtane

Issued by Bobby Stevenson, MPL
DA Leader in the Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature

The Democratic Alliance extends its sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the United Democratic Movement’s Deputy National Chairperson and Member of the Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature, Mncedisi Filtane.

This follows the news of his sudden passing due to Covid-19, after being admitted to Hospital on Friday with low oxygen levels.

Filtane was a true gentleman and an outspoken member of the Legislature. He was courteous in his dealings with everyone, and always ensured robust debates.

He served with dedication and distinction and his presence will be sorely missed both on the opposition benches, and by the whole House.

We wish his family God’s strength during this difficult time.
