Mphumzi Klaas passed away on 26 June. Ikamvanites are grieving for this amazing colleague, tutor, mentor and friend. Mphumzi has been integral to IkamvaYouth since he joined in 2005, while doing grade 11. He has since fulfilled various important roles at the Makhaza branch, and has been an inspiration and friend to hundreds of ikamvanites. When introducing himself to visitors, he’d proudly say that he does “a little bit of everything” at IkamvaYouth, and it was true. Besides keeping the Makhaza branch going and consistently aiming higher, Mphumzi was the glue of the Makhaza family with his deep commitment and great sense of humour.

The memorial service is on the 6th of July 2011 at Desmond Tutu Hall. It will start at 17:30 until 19:00. Click here for the directions from town, and contact me direct 0789929269 if you get lost.

The funeral is on 9 June at Solomon Mahlangu Hall, next to Harry Gwala High School / Kuyasa train station. It will start at 9:30am until 12o’clock.
