Executive Mayor sends condolences to Kobo family

VLEISCHBOOM – Sekhukhune District Municipality Mayor, Stanley Ramaila, has sent condolences to Kobo family following the death of 25 year-old Phakiso Lenslord Kobo, Sekhukhune TVET College student, who passed on in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The Sekhukhune TVET College student met his untimely death between 02:00 and 03:00am when he allegedly fell into a trench forming part of the ongoing Makgeru to Schoornoord bulk water supply project which is currently under construction by the district municipality at Tshehlwaneng village.

Ramaila has passed his deepest condolences to the Kobo family, mainly Phakiso’s mother and his three siblings, his relatives and friends.

“As the municipality we are saying the loss of Kobo family is also our loss. We wish to appeal for calm from everybody involved so that we allow police to investigate this mysterious death unhindered,” said Ramaila.

The Executive Mayor said speculations and accusations would not help anybody during the time of bereavement, rather the needed to work together towards a dignified burial of a son of the soil.

Ramaila concluded the district municipality was committed to support the family during the trying times.

Meanwhile the community members accuse the contractors of being their enemy of their lives. The community said Phakiso’s death illustrates the negligence as contactors fails to ensure the safety of the residents.

Phakiso will be laid to rest on Saturday 08 September in Vleischboom village. For more information contact family spokesperson, Samson Phakwago on 076 428 3566.
