The DA's Phumzile Van Damme says the death of US star Chadwick Boseman and his struggle with cancer has motivated her to open up about her own condition

Esa Alexander

In a lengthy Twitter thread, Van Damme urged people to be kind to one another as “everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about”. “It was so bad that one day I woke up and I could barely walk. I forced myself up, I leant against the walls, showered and went to a march. I was tired but work needed to be done so I worked. It was a march, I walked it, flew home, rested and flew back out the next day,” she wrote.“I went to see an ENT specialist and he found nothing wrong. I pushed myself and I continued to work. I did my job, all while fighting political battles ..." she wrote.

“So anyway, I finally got an appointment with a neurologist, I was so scared that my husband had to come with me. I was ready to receive news that I was dying but didn't let him see this and I put on a brave face.
