“To all my friends and comrades, I discovered in April that I suffer from colon cancer. Chemotherapy treatment didn’t work, instead side effects have led to two incidents of kidney failure and [a] mild heart attack. I survived with the grace of God. I am leaving [sic] my second lease of life and pray to God to give me power to raise my children and family,” he had written.
“My last wish for all my sins. I wanna contribute to renewal of the ANC and success of the NDR [sic],” he said.
Mabe highlighted Mjongile’s journey in the politics.

He continued his life of activism in the ranks of the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL), rising through the ranks and elected to the national executive and national working committees of the ANCYL,” said Mabe.
