In remembrance: Thobeka Priscilla Maseti

15 January 2021

Dear colleagues and students

It saddens us to share the passing of our colleague, Ms Thobeka Priscilla Maseti (59) on 9 January 2021.

Ms Maseti has been part of the University of Cape Town family for over 15 years, and worked in Rochester Hall as a food service assistant in the Department of Student Housing. She showered her colleagues with love and was like a mother to them. As an outspoken, open-hearted person with a warm smile, she will be remembered fondly for her humility and dedication.

Ms Maseti is survived by her two daughters, Yolande and Zandile and grandchildren, Ayabonga and Othandwayo.

The funeral will be on Saturday, 16 January at her home in Philippi, Cape Town.

The university has reached out to the Maseti family to offer our condolences and support. During this difficult time our thoughts and prayers are with them.
