Dear colleagues and students
It is with sadness that I write to inform you of the passing of Ms Alonzia Khanzi, who was the Food Service Assistant at Clarendon Hall Residence. She passed away on Monday, 09 January 2017, after a short illness.
Ms Khanzi was with the University of Cape Town for over two decades, having joined the Catering Division in Student Housing and Residence Life in 1995. She continued working for UCT as an outsourced colleague when the catering services were outsourced in 1995. She was recently once again insourced along with other catering staff.
She will be fondly remembered as a gentle and kind person who was loved by students and staff alike.
Funeral arrangements are still being finalised by the family.
On behalf of the UCT community, I offer heartfelt condolences to the Khanzi family and all of her loved ones.
Professor Francis Petersen
