Statement on the passing on of Cde Andile Reeves Nkuhlu
1 December 2015
The ANC Youth League has learnt with great shock and deep sadness of the untimely passing of the former ANC Youth League National Executive Committee member, Cde Andile Reeves Nkuhlu.
Cde Andile Reeves Nkuhlu joined the ANC Youth League from his early age and grew through the structures of the organization until he got elected to serve into the National Executive Committee of the ANC Youth League in 2001, under the leadership of Cde Malusi Gigaba and Cde Fikile Mbalula as President and Secretary General respectively.
Cde Andile Nkuhlu, through his resolute political engagements got re-elected to serve his second term as part of the National Executive Committe under the leadership of Cde Fikile Mbalula and Cde Sihle Zikalala as President and Secretary General respectively.
Cde Andile, was a serious thinker committed to pragmatism that progressed the National Democratic Revolution (NDR). He played an instrumental role in the ANC Youth League`s economic discussions often illuminating the debates with great insights.
Cde Andile Nkuhlu had the honour to serve our people through the state. He worked within the Ministry of Public Enterprise, under the late Minister Stella Sigcawu and subsequently Minister Jeff Radebe.
Cde Andile, Barry-Ronge as he was affectionately known by close friends, was a compassionate and generous man. His passing is a loss not only to his friends and family but to the development of the democratic process in the country.
It is for this reason that the ANC Youth League conveys its deepest condolences to his mother, Mama Lulama Nkuhlu, his siblings, broader family and entire nation.
The family, cdes must know that the loss of Cde Andile is our loss and a loss to the nation`s thinking tank. We affirm our unequivocal support to his family during these difficult times.
Rest In Peace Cde Andile Reeves Nkuhlu!
