Message of condolence from the Executive Committee of the U.D.P in Botswana

The chairperson and the entire members of the executive committee have learnt with shock, disbelief and deep sorrow of the untimely death of late John Mabuku and Milelo Miziezo.

We hereby wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to the entire bereaved families, colleagues and friends of John Mabuku and Milelo Miziezo.
Late John Mabuku and Milelo were social and friends of everyone especially those who knew them. They were caring and peace loving persons, they were fearless men who strongly believed and advocated for independence of CAPRIVI and the freedom for all CAPRIIVANS; Mr. Mabuku was a dynamic and pragmatic leader of our time, whose credentials though lost out of this struggle remains impeccable.

The departure of those great, great men at this juncture is in- deed a mammoth loss, not only to the family but to all of us, and they will be remembered and missed.
With the same token, the late John Mabuku and Milelo Miziezo will always be remembered in our straggle for freedom because of their commitment and perseverance that they portrayed towards this bitter straggle of our country. Their lives have been robbed from us at the time when their service was still highly needed.
We hope and trust that the noble cause they were pursuing will one day be achieved.

Our words and tears will not resuscitate them back, however; we strongly believe and hope that their souls will be in good safe hands of our Lord. Although their voices are silent, their kind love will remain with us.
We wish to share with you the following words from the scripture: " How we thank God who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our lord" in 1 Corinthians 15 verse 17 and you may also find comfort and solace in John 11 v 25 "Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life he who believes in me shall live even when he dies".

May the Almighty God, console you during this cumbersome time of bereavement.
We wish you strength and courage.
