It is with deep sorrow that we learned of the dearth of former Mayor of the Rustenburg Local Municipality Mr David Davids. He was the first democratically elected Mayor of Rustenburg who served the community in different capacities: The founding Secretary of the African National Congress in the area, and a member of the Communist Party.

Mr Davids was a leader who served his people with excellence for many years. A legendary revolutionary and orator. He made significant improvements to the lives of the Rustenburg community.

On behalf of the community of Rustenburg, the Executive Mayor of Rustenburg Cllr Mpho Khunou offers his deepest condolences to the family, friends and many who knew Mr Davids. We join the people of South Africa and the community of Rustenburg in particular, in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.
