In remembrance: Akwande Seriti Nene

14 January 2021

Dear colleagues and students

We are deeply saddened to share news of the unexpected passing of our student, Miss Akwande Seriti Nene (23), on 13 December 2020.

Miss Nene was studying towards a Bachelor of Business Science degree majoring in Information Systems at the time of her passing. She has been described as a warm, kind-hearted individual who would put others first, doing what she could to help them and make them happy. She was a wonderful leader as demonstrated by her role as captain of the UCT cheerleading team and worked hard to achieve her goals.

Miss Nene leaves behind her parents, Dumisani and Sesupo, as well as her two younger sisters.

This is an extremely difficult time for the Nene family and our thoughts and prayers are with them as they grieve. The university has reached out to the family to offer our condolences to them during this difficult time.
