IFP Extends Condolences to Family of Cde Thabiso Hlatshwayo

Mar 13, 2024 | Press Releases

We are deeply saddened to share the news of the passing of Comrade Thabiso Romarn Hlatshwayo, a young and dedicated activist of the IFP family.

Thabiso, only 17-years-old and a high school student, tragically drowned on Sunday morning in Durban shortly before the start of the IFP Manifesto Launch.

He had traveled with fellow comrades from Ladysmith to attend the IFP Manifesto Launch.

The Party and his family have been searching for him since, and sadly his body was positively identified at a mortuary in Durban today, following his disappearance on Sunday.

Thabiso was more than just a member of the IFP Youth Brigade, he was a vibrant spirit who had so much to look forward to, and achieve.

Thabiso is from Acaciaville, Ladysmith.

We extend our deepest condolences to his family, especially his parents, siblings and friends during this devastating time.

The IFP mourns with the family, friends and loved ones of Thabiso and we offer our support to the Hlatshwayo family.

May his soul rest in peace.
