Dear colleagues and students

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Mr Tefetso Prince Mphahlele (20), on Friday, 17 September 2021 following a short illness.

Mr Mphahlele was completing his second year towards a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Financial Accounting.

His family has described him as intelligent, their shining star, very driven and the first generation in the family to go to university.

He is survived by his mother, Lydia and brother, Gift.

The funeral is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 25 September in Ga-Mphahlele, Limpopo.

The university has contacted the Mphahlele family to offer support during this difficult time. Our sincere condolences go out to them and all who knew and loved him.
