The Congress of South African Trade Union mourns the untimely passing of one its Central Executive Committee members, SAMWU President, Comrade John Dlamini after a short illness. We send our heartfelt condolences to SAMWU, his family, and friends.

Cde Dlamini started his working life as a police officer and worked for the Umgeni local municipality. He led municipal workers at a provincial level as a Regional Secretary and Deputy Provincial Chairperson and led the federation as a COSATU Deputy Provincial Chairperson in the province of KZN.

He was later elected to serve SAMWU at a national level becoming its president last year. We were looking forward to him leading the rebuilding process of our union and also helping the federation to navigate these perilous times of an economic and health crisis caused by COVID-19.

Today is a very sad day for the federation and we pledge to continue in his honour to push ahead with the work of building SAMWU. We will remember his unwavering loyalty to the organisation and his commitment to the struggle for the emancipation of the working class.

We call on SAMWU members to honour Cde John Dlamini by building a stronger and united SAMWU that leads from the front in improving the lives of workers and the poor.

May his soul rest in peace.

RIP President John Dlamini

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) today received with sadness and devastation the news of the passing away of its President, Comrade John Dlamini. Comrade John Dlamini passed away this morning after a short illness.

Born on 17th December 1966, Comrade John Dlamini was a servant of municipal workers and workers in general, he was affectionately known as “student of the revolution” or “young man”.

A policeman by training and service, Comrade John was elected Councillor at the Borough of Howick Municipality which is now the Umgeni local municipality in the early 90’. He also served this institution as its Deputy Council Clerk (Deputy Mayor).

Years later he was employed by the same municipality where he was elected the union’s Regional Secretary and Deputy Provincial Chairperson and ultimately SAMWU KZN Provincial Chairperson. Comrade John also served workers in KZN as COSATU Deputy Provincial Chairperson.

In 2012 at the union’s 10th National Congress in Mangaung, Comrade John was elected the union’s 1st Deputy President, a position he held until his re-election at the union’s 11th National Congress held in 2015.

In April 2019, Comrade John was elected the union’s President in Mangaung, he and his collective were tasked with rebuilding and taking the union to its 12th National Congress this year.

We lower our banners in honour of Comrade John, we salute him for the dedication, love, passion and commitment that he had for SAMWU, its members and workers in general.

We send our heartfelt condolences to the Dlamini family, friends, colleagues, members and municipal workers in general.

Funeral and memorial services arrangements will be made in consultation with the family and such will be communicated.

May his soul rest in peace.
