PRESIDENT CYRIL RAMAPHOSA CONVEYS CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY OF TRADE UNIONIST MR CEDRIC GINA

President Cyril Ramaphosa has conveyed his condolences to the family, friends and comrades of trade unionist Mr Cedric Gina who passed away today, Monday 28 January 2019, at the age of 48.

Mr Gina - a founding member of the Liberated Metalworkers Union of South Africa (Limusa) and former president of the National Union of Metalworkers South Africa - passed away in Addington Hospital, Durban, after two months of illness.

Extending his condolences to Mr Gina’s family, friends and comrades, President Ramaphosa said: “It is sad to learn of the death of a youthful, talented and dedicated leader of the working class and society at large.

“The labour movement and our country in general has been deprived of benefiting from the full potential of Cedric Gina’s contribution to our society and to the betterment of the status of workers in our economy.

“Mr Gina’s role in constructing a social compact since the dawn of our democracy is indelible. May his soul rest in peace.”
