Vytjie Mentor, a former senior ANC MP, died on Tuesday morning after a long illness, according to Action SA leader Herman Mashaba. She was 58 years old.

Mentor was one of the first politicians to testify at the state capture inquiry, where she described how former President Jacob Zuma allegedly tried to recruit her as a pliant minister through the Gupta family. She did, however, give contradictory testimony before the Zondo commission.
She was a member of the ANC and chaired the public enterprises committee. Mentor joined ActionSA nearly two years ago, leaving the ACDP to become the organization’s Western Cape chairperson.

Rest In Peace, Vytjie.https://t.co/I3T1rTjOMG
