In remembrance: Nyanisi Precious Hlongwane

31 March 2021

Dear colleagues and students

It is with immense sorrow that we share the news of the passing of our student, Ms Nyanisi Precious Hlongwane (20), on 19 March 2021.

Ms Hlongwane was studying towards a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

She will be remembered for her hard work and the beautiful smile that she showed even when things were tough. She valued the time she spent with family and friends and always made it memorable.

Ms Hlongwane is survived by her mother, Matodzi, and sister, Rofhiwa.

She was laid to rest on Friday, 26 March in Tshakhuma Luvhalani, Limpopo.

The university has reached out to offer support to the Hlongwane family, and our heartfelt condolences go out to them and all who knew our late student. Members of the UCT community who require support through this period can contact Student Wellness Service or the Human Resources department
