Former Western Cape Agriculture MEC, Gerrit Van Rensburg, passes on

Former Western Cape Agriculture MEC, Gerrit Van Rensburg, has died.

Van Rensburg was the MEC from 2009, until his retirement in May 2014.

During his term, the provinicial Agriculture department received four unqualified audits, and was named by the Southern African Institute for Government Auditors as the best department in South Africa for Annual Reporting for three consecutive years.

‘’With his quiet, modest disposition, he distinguished himself as a true leader, a gentleman, a servant leader. He fully appreciated the role and contribution of the agri-worker.’’ said Western Cape Agriculture MEC, Dr. Ivan Meyer.

‘’With this sense of appreciation, he exponentially grew the Western Cape Farm Worker of the Year Competition.  He also recognised the advisory role that the Agri-Workers Prestige Forum could play in building agriculture in the Western Cape.’’ Added Meyer.

Head of the DA Western Cape Provincial Leader, Bonginkosi Madikizela, says the party is saddened by the passing.

‘’Gerrit will be missed by family, friends and colleagues and he will be remembered for his warmth, collegiality and love for his family. We wish his loved ones all the strength they need during this time of grief. May his soul rest in peace.’’
