The African National Congress has learnt with deep sadness of the passing of Mama Mirriam Stofile, 97 years old, early this morning. Mama Stofile, mother of the late Comrade Reverend Makhenkesi Stofile, had been sick for a while before she passed away this morning.

She is one of the heroines who selflessly gave of her two sons to the congress movement, Cdes Makhenkesi and Mike, to the struggle for liberation of our people during the unrelenting and violent Apartheid regime rule in this country. She shaped their fearless acts of heroism in advocating for the freedom of the black people.

The African National Congress wishes to express it's heartfelt condolences to relatives, friends and the entire Stofile family.
