It's with deep regret that we announce to the citizens of Kwadukuza the passing of former Kwadukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu.
The citizens of Kwadukuza mourn the loss of Mvelase, with the Mthembu family and on behalf of Kwadukuza citizens, Kwadukuza-Online conveys our deepest condolences to the Mthembu family and the ANC.
Ricardo Mthembu lost the battle against COVID-19 after about a week at the Kwadukuza Private Hospital where he was being treated. The loss of Mr Mthembu brings greater attention to the seriousness of the pandemic we are facing globally. Kwadukuza has been marked as a Civid-19 'Hotspot' and the death of Mthembu surely highlights the seriousness of this fact. The Corona virus has taken yet another life in Kwadukuza and the public is reminded to take heed to all precautionary measures to protect yourself against this ruthless nondiscriminatory virus.
