It will be travesty of justice if we do not pass our words of appreciation to the Sojola family for the way they made us part of the family from the day Topo departed this cruel world.

We received updates every other day about all the plans of the funeral.

It was as if we are just next door and yet some of us were miles and miles away. Because of those updates we were able to plan our journeys from across the country.

We need to thank the family for allowing us to mourn with them.

We were allowed to soften the blow and lower the burden of the loss of their loved one. We also carried our load of mourning without the family treating us as outsiders.

On the day of the funeral the family had to tolerate us fielding one speaker after the other.

They did not complain because they understood that Tokose belonged to us all.

The warmth and hospitality from all members of the family made us understood where Tokose inherited such. Every one of us felt welcome as a family member.

We now have new friends from the Sojola family. From all of us

. Ex COSAS students

.Wantu Zenzile Foundatio

. Thamsanqa Renewal Project

. Ex Students of UWC

. Ex students of Khanya

. Friends inside the country and many outside SA who could not come,

We want to express our heartfelt appreciation to you as a family.

To Asange and the kids, family and everyone sithi Akuhlanga lungehlanga. Thuthuzelekani. Kunjalo kuzo zonke intlanga. Enkosi kakhulu.

Friends of Theophilus Sojola via email
