Cape Town – Fees Must Fall Western Cape activist, Luxolo Mlunguza, has passed on.
Mlunguza passed away on 06 December 2017 at the Lentegeur Hospital after suffering from severe shortness of breath. Mlunguza had been admitted to Khayelitsha Day Hospital three weeks ago until he was discharged last week Friday. He got sick again while home and was transported to the Lentegeur Hospital where he succumbed to the illness.
Commenting on his death, FMWC described Mlunguza as a committed media activist and photographer credited for founding Black Talent SA “a media platform which carried news of both Black Excellence and Black Pain, and the many programs of Black resistance happening especially in Cape Town”.
UCT TV where Mlunguza recently graduated from a Stepping Stone short media training course expressed its condolences on his passing, saying that “his creativity, passion & drive will always be remembered by the UCT Staff.”
His death comes just a few months after the death of his two Kilombo Village and FMF cadres Mthunzi ‘Ras Moziah’ Zuma and Philela Gilwa who were both murdered just over a month apart after being involved in a land occupation in Khayelitsha.
Mlunguza was a student at the University of the Western Cape, a member of Way of Life Kilombo Village, PASMA and Fees Must Fall Western Cape.
