ANC Parliamentary Caucus mourns the passing of Hillary Gardee, Daughter of EFF Former Secretary – General Godrich Gardee

3 May 2022

The ANC Parliamentary Caucus has today, Tuesday, 03 May 2022 learnt with deep shock and sadness the news of the passing on of Ms Hillary Gardee following her disappearance on Friday, 29 April 2022

Losing a child is the most heart-breaking tragedy a parent can go through and leaves a void that cannot be filled. No parent deserves to go through what the family is going through at this point, to see their child’s life ended abruptly in the prime of her youth. To the three year -old who will be left without a mother, the pain is unbearable to contemplate.

To the Gardee family, friends and relatives, the ANC Caucus extends its heartfelt condolences on the tragic passing of Hillary at a time when our country is fighting the scourge of Gender – based violence.  We call on anyone with any information that may lead to the arrest of the perpetrator/s of this dastardly barbaric act to report such information to the police.

Similarly, we call on law enforcement agencies to do their part to ensure that such perpetrators are apprehended and face the full might of the law and that justice takes its course swiftly.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this dark period in their lives,

Issued by the Office of the Chief Whip, Hon. Pemmy Majodina
