The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) in KwaZulu-Natal has received, with great sorrow, the news of the untimely passing of its Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) Member, Ms Dicco Nombuso Mkhize. She was born on 29 September 1979 and passed away on 5 December 2021.
Ms Mkhize completed her primary school education in Macambini in Mandeni, and then went to Mzwamandla High School. She then completed PC Training and later worked at iLembe District Municipality as a Call Centre Operator.
Ms Mkhize is survived by three brothers, a sister, and her son and daughter.
Ms Mkhize was an IFP activist from a young age. In 1997, she was the Publicity Secretary of Youth Brigade, later becoming the Chairperson of Youth Brigade in Lindelani Constituency in KwaDukuza.
