Statement by Lechesa Tsenoli on the recent disasters

20 November 2008

The ANC wishes to convey its deepest condolences to all the families who have lost their loved ones during the recent disasters.

We also convey our grateful appreciation of the efforts of community development workers, ward committee members, volunteers, council and departments officials, including public representatives, who took proactive steps to prevent and help mitigate the impact of these disasters in the Free State, the Western Cape, KwaZulu Natal and in other provinces.

The ANC further urges all other stakeholders to prioritise disaster management and recognise the strategic value of being a caring society in practice thereby!

I thank you!
