It is devastating, I am guttered. He was a dependable force.Panyaza Lesufi, Deputy provincial chairperson - Gauteng ANC
Many people outside the ANC think that we don't raise the issues that people think are common sense to be raised in the ANC. Issues such as corruption and service delivery, we would rely on that person to raise such issues sharply.Panyaza Lesufi, Deputy provincial chairperson - Gauteng ANC
To lose such a person on the eve of a war that would define who we are as the ANC as we move to the NGC and local government is like losing ourselves.Panyaza Lesufi, Deputy provincial chairperson - Gauteng ANC
Communications expert Chris Vick said he found Mthembu incredibly accessible.

A leader amongst us has left this world. His heart has ceased to beat thus leaving our hearts in pain. The pain is deep and unmeasurable.— Panyaza Lesufi (@Lesufi) January 21, 2021
This is painful.— Tessa Dooms (@tessie18) January 21, 2021
Minister Jackson Mthembu was simply one of the best human beings I met in government. He was the definition of servanthood and was committed to getting the job done. A humble, approachable leader, eager to learn and help.
The country is so much poorer
I'm only just hearing of Minister Mthembu's death. A devastating loss. He was a good and kind man. Always so friendly in our interactions. He had integrity and vulnerability which is so rare in our politics. May his family and loved ones find comfort and peace. #RIPJacksonMthembu— Dr. Sithembile Mbete (@sthembete) January 21, 2021
