TAC sends its condolences following the tragic death of the Deputy Minister of Health Dr Molefi Sefularo

Dr Molefi Sefularo was born in Potchefstroom in the North West in 1957. He was appointed MEC for Health in the North West in 1994. In 2008 he was appointed Deputy Minister of Health by former President Kgalema Motlanthe. He was reappointed in this position in May 2009 by the current President Jacob Zuma.

Dr Sefularo played a very important role in the National Ministry of Health at the end of state-backed AIDS denialism. He also represented a sense of continuity to the leadership of the National Department of Health at the time. His sudden departure will be felt in the Ministry of Health and the country.

The current leadership shown by the Minister of Health, Aaron Motsoaledi, and the deputy Director General strategic health programmes, Yogan Pillay, gives us confidence that the fight against HIV/AIDS will continue.

We would like to send our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, comrades and all those who knew him.

The nation will remember him as a good man and a leader who cared about the health of the poor.
