ActionSA leader Herman Mashaba has confirmed to Eyewitness News that Mentor died in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

ActionSA member and former MP, Vytie Mentor, has passed away following a long illness. The 58-year-old was hospitalised for several months prior to her passing. “She had heart problems. The other details, we as ActionSA, left it to the family to deal with because it was really very difficult for them to disclose some of those things,” Mashaba said.
