The eldest daughter of Jackson Mthembu, a senior party member of the African National Congress (ANC), committed suicide on the night of Tuesday, March 19. The party member shared his pain with the public in a gut-wrenching tweet this morning.
My eldest daughter , Khwezi Mthembu , last night committed suicide at our Pelican parliamentary village home in #Capetown . We are in deep pain . We don’t know what led her to take her own life at such a tender age of 25 years .
