ANC Parliamentary Caucus is saddened by the passing of the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police, Comrade Tina Joemat-Pettersson
05 June 2023
The ANC Parliamentary Caucus has learned with shock about the passing of the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police, Comrade Tina Joemat-Pettersson. Comrade Tina had served the people of South Africa in Parliament and government for several terms in various positions.
She served as the MEC for Education in the Northern Cape and later the MEC for Agriculture. After her election to the National Assembly, she was appointed Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries from 2009 to 2014 and Minister of Energy from 2014 to 2017.
She was a proud product of the people of her province, the Northern Cape, whom she held in high esteem.
The ANC Caucus extends our heartfelt condolences to her family and loved ones during this time of grieving. We appeal to the media and public to give Comrade Tina’s family and ANC Caucus space to come to terms with this devastating loss.

Comrade Pemmy Majodina (MP)
