ACDP extends condolences to family of Jessie Duarte

The African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) extends its condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of the late ANC Deputy Secretary-General Yasmin "Jessie" Duarte.

Jessie, as she was affectionately known to many, passed away after a long battle with cancer.

She will be remembered, especially by her political colleagues, as an activist, political leader and a struggle stalwart. Additionally, in the words of those close to her, she was a no-nonsense, straight talker, dedicated to improving the lives of her people.

We pray that God heals the broken hearts of her family, extended relatives and friends and grants them the necessary strength at this difficult time.
