EFF: Lundi Tyamara used talent to be part of revolution
The party says when many artists were isolated and criticized for being associated with the EFF Tyamara, who died on Friday, stayed with them.
JOHANNESBURG – While condolences continue to pour in since the death of gospel star Lundi Tyamara, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has described him a revolutionary artist who used his talent to awaken people spiritually and to partake in the generational revolution of his time.
Tyamara passed on at the age of 38, after a long battle with Tuberculosis of the stomach and liver complications.
The party says when many artists were isolated and criticized for being associated with the EFF, Tyamara stayed with them because he believed in the course and generational call of economic freedom.
Spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says the party sends condolences to the family and friends of the gospel legend.
“We also express that this is a loss to the EFF members across the board, because Lundi was a true artist who graced us with his performances at a time when it was not fashionable and many artists did not wanted to be associated to the EFF. We would like to express our revolutionary condolences to his family. May his soul rest in perfect revolutionary peace.”
Tyamara's memorial service will be held at the Grace Bible church in Pimville Soweto on Tuesday.
