Lindiwe Mazibuko, the first applicant in the landmark Phiri Water Case, passed away earlier this week at her home in Phiri.

40 year-old Lindiwe Mazibuko, passed away at her home in Phiri after a lengthy illness related to cancer. Lindiwe was the first applicant in the landmark Phiri water rights case. Judgement was recently handed down in this case, in the High Court, in which the pre-paid water meters that Lindiwe had fought so valiantly against, were declared illegal and unconstitutional. When the judgement was handed down, Lindiwe, despite her own failing health, was ecstatic. She had fought long and hard with other residents of Phiri to realise the human and constitutional rights to water that had been denied her and her family, simply because they were poor and it is only fitting that Lindiwe was able to witness the victory before she passed on. Lindiwe is survived by her two young daughters, Khosi and Zodwa, as well her large extended family whom she lived with in Phiri.

Lindiwe will be sorely missed by those who knew her and celebrated by the many more who were witness to her brave struggles for the dignity of her and her family as well as all other Phiri residents and poor communities in South Africa. The Coalition mourns her passing and we salute Lindiwe for her unflagging spirit and fight for justice and equality.

LINDIWE’S FUNERAL WILL TAKE PLACE TOMORROW (SATURDAY) AT 09H30 AT HER HOME IN PHIRI. THE FUNERAL WILL BE FOLLOWED BY HER BURIAL AT THE AVALON CEMETARY IN SOWETO AT 12H30.

HAMBA KAHLE LINDIWE

YOUR STRUGGLE WILL CONTINUE!
