WC ANC's Songezo Mjongile dies of cancer

CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress (ANC) in the Western Cape's former secretary Songezo Mjongile has died.

Mjongile passed away in Johannesburg on Thursday following a battle with colon cancer.

The party said that he was a member of the ANC's interim provincial committee in the Western Cape at the time of his death.

He was also a former provincial leader of the Congress of South African Students and was later elected as the organisation's national president.

ANC Western Cape convener Lerumo Kalako: "It's a big loss to us. Of late, he was taking his time, trying to push the ANC to really transform the economy of the country. He was really absorbed with that."
