Death Of Moses Khumalo

7 September 2006

Madam Speaker, our country has been robbed again of yet another wonderful young musician, this time, the 27-year-old Moses Khumalo, who was found dead hanging in his flat earlier this week. He was a talented musician who was well ahead of his contemporaries.

He was introduced into the jazz scene as a member of the late Moses Molelekwa`s band. He was also a member of the Soweto Youth Jazz Band that toured places like London and West Africa for three years. His creative talent and remarkable ability saw him performing with the likes of Prince Lingoasa, Sibongile Khumalo, Paul Hanmer, Khaya Mahlangu and other renowned musicians.

As a composer, musician and songwriter, Moses was regarded as one of South Africa`s finest developing artists. The ANC extends our heartfelt condolences to his family, colleagues in the music industry and friends. Thank you.
