Deputy President David Mabuza will tomorrow, Saturday 26 November 2022, attend and deliver the eulogy at the funeral service of Warrant Officer Thomas Shongwe of the Presidential Protection Services who passed away last weekend in a car accident.

Warrant Officer Shongwe passed away on the scene of an accident while travelling in a motorcade on Sunday, 20 November 2022, to Gauteng as part of the Deputy President’s convoy.

The deceased member served in the South African Police Service (SAPS) VIP Unit attached to the erstwhile Premier of Mpumalanga Province until 2018. At the time of his passing, he was a member of the Presidential Protection Services and had 31 years of uninterrupted service at South African Police Service since 1991.

The loss of W/O Shongwe has been a sad incident that has left a void to the Presidential Protection Services, especially that attached to the Deputy President.
