Motion on the death of Ambasador Faith Radebe

The African National Congress moves without notice: That the House

1) notes with sadness the death Ambassador Feziwe Faith Radebe on Tuesday 13 March 2018, after battling with cancer;
2) further notes that at the time of her passing, she was serving the country as Ambassador to Sweden, following her full term of service as Inspector-General of Intelligence;
3) remembers that prior to her role as Inspector-General, she was South Africa's Ambassador to the Caribbean countries where she served the country with distinction;
4) further remembers that Radebe is one of the cadres who underwent military training and she has an illustrious record of serving the liberation movement in various capacities;
5) recognises that she emerged as an astute diplomat whose talents have showcased our country favorably and one respected by the world community;
6) believes that her departure has not only robbed us of a committed South African, but also of an advocate for a nation that still has a role in transforming world multilateral governance institutions through progressive diplomacy; and
7) conveys its heartfelt condolences to entire Radebe family.
