STAFF and management of Bidvest Waltons Stationers Port Shepstone and the community are still in shock after the life of a former Waltons employee and local musician died in a tragic accident in Oslo Beach on Sunday night.

Mlungisi ‘Juise’ Nciki of Sea Park was declared dead at the scene, while the other two occupants of the bakkie he collided with were taken to hospital with moderate injuries.

Waltons manager Natalie Dunbar said, as the staff of Waltons, their hearts are broken.

“Juise was a friend, a colleague and most importantly a brother to us. We are praying for his family, especially his mom, sisters and his daughter, for strength and comfort during this time.”

Dunbar said Juise will always be remembered for his light.

“He brought joy and happiness wherever he went. He loved singing and we were always greeted in song and dance in the office. He had a wonderfully mischievous sense of humour that we loved. On many tough, challenging days he would make us laugh and we would forget our worries.


We are so thankful that he was part of our lives, a true friend to us all,” said Dunbar.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Zandra Wiid said

a culpable homicide docket will be investigated.”

Wiid said Cluster Commander, Major General Sethenya Nxamagele, who visited the scene, expressed her shock with yet another tragic accident on the roads.

Nciki was also a technician for local event management company Cyassounds Holdings for a very long time.

Founder Siyabonga Msomi said he is grateful for having met Juice. “When Cyassounds was started Juise was one of the first people who worked with us.

He was a man with a fighting spirit, always striving for success. He was very helpful, cheerful, reliable and honest. He achieved all he set his mind too.” said Msomi.

Msomi emphasised that Juise was gifted musically and he remembers the day he sang at his parents anniversary.

“He will forever be missed by many and may his cheerful soul rest in perfect peace.”

Nciki’s funeral service will be held at Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre this coming Saturday.
