Colleagues from the Tshwane Department of Human Settlements paid their last respects to Mthokozisi Ntumba who lost his life as a bystander when police fired rubber bullets at protesting students in Braamfontein last week.
Colleagues, friends and family gathered at the Tshwane House on Wednesday morning, to pay their last respects to “hard-working” employee who was killed last week.
Ntumba has worked for the Tshwane metro for five years as a human settlements planner responsible for the formalisation of informal settlements (township establishment) programme.
The City of Tshwane today hosted at Tshwane House a memorial service for the family and employees who worked with the married father of three, who served as a human settlement planner for the City.
An atmosphere of sadness, loss and void uncomfortably settled in on the colleagues who praised his work as he was tasked to formalise the informal settlements in Tshwane, including the popular Soshanguve Nkandla Informal Settlement, popularly known as Changing Spot.
Ntumba will be laid to rest on Saturday in KwaZulu-Natal. #ladi_jaja?
