It’s sad that people who served this country well are taken away like this.
The shocking death of Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu has left Mzansi in deep sorrow.
Death has robbed our beautiful country of a great, honest and intelligent mind.
Hearts are broken because South Africa has lost a true leader in Makwetu.
Makwetu was about to hand over the reins to his deputy, Tsakani Maluleke.
It’s hard to believe he’s no more.
He was a real warrior who died with his boots on.
Makwetu served the country with dedication, distinction and integrity.
He’s been consistent, persistent, excellent and world-class.
The government and Parliament let him and his office down by not acting on his recommendations.
We should make a solemn commitment never to abandon his proud legacy of clean and accountable administration.
