SADTU mourns the death of Samuel Fenyane (HOD Research)

31 December 2015

We learned with a great shock and sadness that our Researcher Samuel Fenyane had passed way after a short illness on 26 December 2015. His departure has robbed the Union and the country of one of the most dedicated servants of our people, particularly the membership.

Indeed there are very few in his generation who can be compared with Samuel Fenyane in terms of his selfless and passionate love for Education, which resulted in him dedicating his life in championing the interest of African children in Education. As a Researcher he served SADTU with no expectation of personal glory.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family members of Samuel Fenyane as well as with his friends. As much as his family will miss him so too will this Union which he served with distinction. We are indeed honoured that we had privilege to work with and come to know Fenyane.

May his soul rest in peace.

The Memorial Service will be held as follows.

  • Date: Thursday, 31st December 2015.
  • Time: 13h00
  • Venue: Batubatse Primary School Hall, Praktiseer (Next to Tubatse Police Station), Burgersfort, Limpopo.

The Funeral service will be held as follows:

  • Date: Friday, the 1st of January 2016
  • Time: 06h00
  • Venue: Alberton, Letlhabile Secondary School, Burgersfort, Limpopo
