SA’s famous faces also paid their respects to the politician. Sizwe Dhlomo paid his respects in retweets of kind words.

Singer-songwriter Simphiwe Dana took to Twitter with a dedication to Jackson, revealing her political leanings.

“Jackson Mthembu was a really likable politician. May his soul Rest In Peace,” she wrote.

Naked DJ and actor Dumisani Mbebe felt deeply saddened by the loss.

The passing prompted Dumisani to share his feelings on the coronavirus after his own recovery. He also used the chance to call out the govt.

“I didn’t get over what your office terms ‘Covid-related complications’. It’s rather ‘denialistic’ in nature that folks die from complications rather than the virus!”

He sent his condolences to Jackson Mthembu’s family and loved ones, reminding them to remain strong during these trying times.
