In remembrance: Linda Chola

08 July 2022

Dear colleagues and students

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our colleague, Ms Linda Chola (46), on 28 June 2022.

Ms Chola joined the University of Cape Town in 2008 and was part of the campus cleaning team. Her colleagues remember her as a humble, considerate and hardworking person, who took pride in her work. She was joyous, friendly and loved helping people in need. She was a motivator to her colleagues, always encouraging them to love and care for one another.

She leaves behind her mother, Ms Beauty Zuzani.

She will be laid to rest at Njwaxa Location in Middledrift, Eastern Cape on Saturday, 9 July 2022. A memorial service was held on Wednesday, 6 July 2022.

The university has reached out to offer support to the Chola family. We convey our heartfelt condolences to her family, friends and all who knew her. Our thoughts are with them during this time of bereavement.
