Life of a ‘public worker’

2008-05-09 00:00

Mention “community work” or “charity organisations” in Pietermaritzburg and many people think immediately of well-known city resident, Alderman Lutchmanan “LS” Moodley. When he withdrew from public life in 1998 because of poor health, Moodley had given 60 years of service to the community. He will be 88 in October.

When he turned 75 in 1995, The Witness recorded that he still attended about four meetings a day and felt “too full of energy and life” to retire. A profile published by the Graphic in 1980 when he was 60 records that “He is involved in every sphere of public activity and there is no weekend in the year that finds him not attending meetings of a sporting, religious, civic or welfare organisation. For over four decades he has given hours of relentless and selfless service to his people.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
