The ANC has suffered yet another blow.

Last week the movement lost another valuable member, George Nkomoyahlaba Baloyi.

Born on March 21 1954 in Sophiatown, Baloyi started his schooling at Rishile Primary in Meadowlands and later attended Mawila Higher Primary.

In early 1992 he was employed by the ANC as a security guard at Shell House in Johannesburg. He took an active role in the Mass Democratic Movement in Meadowlands.

Baloyi played an active role in the formation of street committees during the apartheid era and later led a committee dealing with the rent boycotts.

He was elected to serve on the Meadowlands branch executive committee of the ANC, ward 42.

Baloyi was also treasurer for the South African National Civic Organisation in the ward.

He resigned from his security post, but remained a dedicated member of the movement.

Baloyi established his own security company known as Nkomoyahlaba Security Services and a muti shop where he consulted as a traditional healer. He also organised local healers into an association.

He later formed a provincial traditional healers association and was elected president of the National Herbalist Inyangas Association.

Baloyi is survived by 12 children and seven grandchildren. He will be buried tomorrow after a service at Zone 10 Meadowlands Multi-purpose Hall from 10am.
