Michaelhouse OB for TC

Personal message

Michaelhouse OB are contributing to TC's family to use the funds as they need or towards the future education of his son at Michaelhouse.

"Mphathisi I have nothing but fond memories of us growing up and becoming adults. In the past 40 years we were neighbours, friends, family friends, brothers, classmates and MHS Old Boys.  It wasn't easy having me as your "younger brother",  somehow you managed both at home and at boarding school. Growing up it was the odd klap and skop, after a few tears we carried on with our daily business as if nothing happened.

At boarding school, things got a bit more exciting with our "adopted brother" Thembela in the equation, May His Soul Rest in Peace. You never failed to impress and had a way of dealing with us. Thirty years later we still had a good laugh about those moments. Rest easy my friend.

Zizi I will always be there to support Pindiwe, Thando, Anda, Sese, Lelam and Likho.   "Maninginingi or Jazz" that's how you referred to me and never by my name, Lizo

You touched many lives and we will forever remember your smile and laughter.

Rest my brother" - Lizo Ndaba


Let us continue with the spirit of UBUNTU and remember the good work he did, including raising funds for the communities around Michaelhouse.

*All platform fees for the campaign are covered.

I am beyond words and deeply saddened to hear of TC's passing. I liked him from the moment I met him on the first day of MHS and was proud to call him my friend. I will miss him, his humour, his kindness and his love and care for us all.

Always smiling was TC. That’s what I remember. At school and at the reunion last year nothing had changed - just a happy guy who was great fun to be around.

Bruce ‘89
I am very sorry to hear that and saddened to hear a class member has passed. A tragic loss.

Steve Wimbush
I am desperately saddened to hear this Lizo. I am so sorry.

"He will be warmly remembered as a man full of character and decency and good humor.  One who lived consciously and was engaged with his broader community. He was respected as well as liked by all people drawn from a diverse cross-section of our little country, as the messages in our class forum can attest to.  I always assumed I would have time to connect with him and get to know him better as an adult. I am so sorry for the terrible loss that you all must be suffering. Know that Mphatisi left a strong legacy among those who have known him since he was a boy and he will be missed and well-remembered" - Jonathan Chaplin

Re-connecting after 30 years, it was an honour to get to know TC again and work with him over the last 6 months. Greatness amongst men shone through him. He stood up to make a difference in the world on a daily basis. He leaves the world a better place because of how he lived.
