We salute James Mthangala

Ronnie Ndimeni, chairman and NEC member on behalf of Sugar industry and Gledhow Sugar Company reports that they received the painful news of losing the Unionist/Shop steward Mr James Thandokwakhe Mthangala who has been battling with a heart problem since last year. Unfortunately he lost his battle this week and his funeral is next week on Sunday 09 April 2017.

James has been a Shop steward of UASA for more than 15 years and he worked very hard to groom Ronnie as a young man. Thanks to James, UASA became the majority Union in Gledhow Sugar Company and this company is the only company that UASA has majority in the whole Sugar industry. James single handedly recruited about 65 to 70% of members at Gledhow Sugar.

We are currently processing the death claim in terms of the UASA Funeral Benefit so that James' family and our members can bury him with the dignity he deserves. Lala ngoxolo mfowethu
