Tragic Accident involving National Education Standing Committee Members
2 August 2017
It with shock and sadness that I have heard that four Members of the National Assembly who were visiting schools in the Western Cape as part of their oversight role as the Education Portfolio Committee, were involved in a tragic car accident near Paarl this morning.
I believe that one of the members has died, whose name has not been released until the family has been informed, and that others have been injured.
My thoughts and heartfelt condolences are with the family and friends of the deceased at this difficult time, and the other members who have been injured and part of the accident.
The National Assembly will release further details once they are in a position to do so.
