The sudden death of Gauteng MPL Mapiti Matsena was on Thursday was on Thursday announced by the police.
The news revealed that the late Gauteng MPL Mapiti Matsena was with his family at their house at Holy Hock Street in Doornpoort when he was attacked and fatally stabbed in the chest on Wednesday evening.
According to IOL, Sinoville police arrived at the scene just before 23:00, and found him in his bedroom. He was declared dead at the scene.
Matsena was the chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Community Safety and a member of the Portfolio Committee on Infrastructure Development and Property Management. Mapiti has been fearing for his life for the past months because of Tshwane tender irregularities.
Speaker Ntombi Mekgwe said Matsena served both committees diligently and with great distinction.
“He always demonstrated commitment and dedication in his work as a public representative. Passionate about the safety of the residents of Gauteng, Matsena never missed an opportunity to express his convictions with law enforcement authorities regarding the safety of the people of Gauteng.
“He represented a rare breed of public representatives with a distinct ability to put political differences aside to achieve common objectives that served the best interests of citizens,” Mekgwe said.
Mekgwe added that Matsena understood his role and ensured full accountability by the Gauteng Department of Community Safety and the provincial police on matters of community safety, particularly those involving women and children.
“His firm stance against gender-based violence (GBV) gained him popularity among his peers as he never missed an opportunity to campaign and advocate for the strengthening of the fight against GBV.
“His passing marks a great loss to the province. We appeal to law enforcement authorities to work with the greatest urgency to bring the murderers to book,” said Mekgwe.
According to dfa.co.za, The National Police Commissioner General Khehla John Sitole on Thursday tasked Gauteng SAPS provincial management to immediately mobilise the 72-hour activation plan following the murder of Gauteng Legislature safety and security portfolio committee chairperson Mapiti David Matsena.
“I have tasked the acting provincial commissioner of Gauteng to ensure that this case be investigated by the provincial investigation unit and that critical resources including crime intelligence and forensic services be mobilised to identify and arrest those responsible for the murder of Mr Matsena” said Sitole.
Matsena, former Tshwane ANC deputy chairperson, was with his family at his home in Holy Hock Street in Doornpoort, north of Pretoria, when he was attacked and fatally stabbed in the chest.
