South African Communist Party

25 September 2021 The South African Communist Party (SACP) in Limpopo is deeply saddened by the passing away of Comrade Rampedi Walter Mothapo, a former Provincial Executive Committee member of the SACP in Limpopo, head of the International Relations Commission. Comrade Walter died on Wednesday, 22 September 2021, due to Covid-19 complications. The SACP conveys its heartfelt condolences to his family, his relatives, the community of Ga-Mothapo at large, members of the Party across the province, the mass democratic movement and revolutionary Alliance. The Party in Limpopo therefore dips its red banner in mourning the death of this leader of the people who was very passionate about political education. Comrade Walter was a former leader of the South African Student Congress, former leader of the Young Communist League South Africa, and a political commissar of our liberation struggle who had a passion for writing and reading books. Comrade Walter proved his ability to teach politics of the Party in many ways. He understood the importance of always linking theory and practice, understanding that theory without practice is sterile and practice without theory is blind. Hailing from the rural village of Ga Mothapo, Comrade Walter dedicated his life to serving with distinction the SACP, Alliance, and the progressive youth alliance. He undoubtedly served with distinction the people of Limpopo province with a great sense of humility and love by way of demonstrating his ability to teach the Marxism-Leninist theory. Comrade Walter remained an activist of the movement, a writer and commentator who was committed to the Marxist-Leninist theory until his death. He lived his life as a committed and disciplined cadre of the Party. He was an astute public servant who could not be associated with corruption, nepotism and malfeasance for he was the communist to the end and understood the good ethics of the public service.
