Condolences to David Sipunzi's family and colleagues
Wednesday, 30 December 2020: Eskom has learnt with great sadness of the passing of Mr David Sipunzi, the General-Secretary of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), one of the largest labour unions for Eskom employees. Eskom was informed that Mr Sipunzi met his untimely death on Christmas day after a very short-illness.
We would like to pass our heartfelt and sincere condolences to the Sipunzi family; the members and leaders of the NUM.
Mr Sipunzi was a dedicated servant of the working class. His contribution to trade unionism in general and worker rights in particular is unquestionable.
As Eskom, we were honoured and privileged to interact and work with a principled leader and hardworking person like Mr Sipunzi. He will indeed be sorely missed. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
