Hamba Kahle Ma-Dlamini, all journeys come to an end

2015-04-30 06:00

It is with a deep sense of grief to announce that our sister, Ousie Nqolobe-Mpongwana finally succumbed to illness after a two-decade battle.

It was almost twenty-years ago that shw was struck by a stray bullet on her way to work at the Red Cross Memorial Hospital.

She was confirmed to a wheelchair as a result of this incident.

As the family and friend, we are still wondering what happened to the man who pulled the trigger that came to decide my sister’s fate. Nevertheless, we wished him God’s blessings.

She began her formal education at St. Louis Primary in Langa, and then proceeded to Mary Mount High in the Eastern Cape.

From there, she enrolled at the Glen Grey Hospital, famously known then as ‘Kwa- NoNkunzi’, to study nursing.

After graduating she came back home and spent her entire life working at the Red Cross Memorial Hospital.

All those who came to be acquainted with her, remember her as a a caring and a loving person.

In the unpredictable hostilities of township dwellers and former migrant labourers, there was a skirmish in 1968. It was on the day of the funeral of Mr Moholo. Even today there are many guys who still bear those scars. Few of us are left now from the lineage of MaNkomo and Dlamini. She will be missed by many especially grandchildren.

Ousie will be buried on Saturday at the Roman Catholic Church in Langa
