On behalf of Umzimvubu Local Municipality, I would like to convey our deepest condolences to the family and close friends of the late Bishop Thembinkosi Fandaleki.

It’s with great sadness that we have learned the passing on of Bishop Fandaleki, who unexpectedly left us earlier this week.

Bishop Fandaleki passed on during Women’s Month. A month in which he strongly contributed to the emancipation of women in our region. He will be remembered for his resilient spirit and willingness to assist wherever he could. Bishop Fandaleki had been a minister since 1989 and had served the Methodist church with distinction in many stations, including Nelspruit, Khayelitsha and KwaBhaca where he was elected as bishop of Clarkebury District.




May the soul of our esteemed leader and brother, Bishop Thembinkosi Fandaleki, rest in peace.
