In remembrance: Nosiphelo Pere

09 July 2020

Dear colleagues and students

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Ms Nosiphelo Pere (31) passed away unexpectedly at her parents’ home in the Eastern Cape in the early hours of Thursday, 2 July 2020.

Ms Pere worked in the Student Housing cluster within the Department of Student Affairs. She was a hygiene controller, a role she carried out with the utmost dedication. Ms Pere, according to colleagues, always performed her duties to the best of her ability. She was a loving person with a quiet demeanour. 

She is survived by her parents, seven siblings and a 13-year-old daughter.

Her funeral will take place in her hometown of Cetane in the Eastern Cape on Saturday, 11 July 2020.

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