Communist Party of Swaziland mourns the death of its former National Chairperson Dumisani Fakudze

The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) has sadly learned of the passing away of Comrade Dumisani “DU” Fakudze on the early hours of June 2, 2023.

The CPS conveys its message of heartfelt condolences to Comrade Dumisani’s family, the working class as well as the mass democratic movement which he served diligently till he breathed his last.
Comrade DU, as he was affectionately known by his comrades and within the mass democratic movement, committed his life to the struggle for freedom in Swaziland, making huge sacrifices in service to the fighting people of Swaziland. On 20 December 2019, as he was leaving his home in Manzini to attend the Zimbabwean Communist Party’s National Congress, Mswati’s police invaded his home and detained him along with a number of leaders of the progressive movement. Despite continuous victimisation by the autocracy, he continued marching along the revolutionary line.

In paying tribute to Comrade Dumisani “DU” Fakudze, the CPS calls for maximum unity of the working class to boycott, disrupt and stop Mswati’s sham elections, unite the people for a nationwide insurrection towards freedom for all.

Long live the undying spirit of Comrade DU!

Forward to Socialism!
