UFS saddened by the passing of MEC for Health
2012-12-03

03 December 2012

The University of the Free State (UFS) is deeply saddened by the passing of the MEC for Health in the Free State provincial legislature, the Honourable Ms Fezi Ngubentombi.

She had attended a rally and the launch of a day-care centre with pres. Jacob Zuma in Qwaqwa on Saturday. MEC Ngubentombi and one of her bodyguards, Sergeant BC Motaung, were killed in the single vehicle crash on Saturday night just outside Bloemfontein.
 
MEC Ngubentombi was a strong partner in the development and transformation of the Health Sciences at the UFS and will be sorely missed. She also supported the UFS with the work done around the Charlotte Maxexe Memorial Lecture.
 
In the words of the Vice-Chancellor and Rector, Prof. Jonathan Jansen: “MEC Fezi, as she was fondly known, was a decent human being, a committed activist, and the consummate professional in the way we worked together to advance health and health education in the province.”
