In remembrance: Nonkosinathi Silandela

17 June 2020

Dear colleagues and students

It is with immense sadness that we inform you of the passing of Ms Nonkosinathi Silandela (40). She passed away in hospital during the early hours of Thursday, 11 June 2020, due to natural causes.

Ms Silandela had worked in the Campus Protection Services since 2007 and at the time of her passing was based at Hiddingh Campus. Her soft-hearted nature endeared her to the many people who worked with her as she was actively involved in most activities in her department. She was never afraid to speak her mind, and her outspoken nature commanded respect. Her loud and loving voice will be sorely missed by her colleagues.

Ms Silandela is survived by her 17-year-old daughter and 23-year-old son.

Her funeral will take place on Thursday, 18 June in Komani, Eastern Cape.

The university has reached out to offer support to the Silandela family, and our heartfelt condolences go out to them and all who knew Ms Silandela.
