Subject:           Condolences – Thokozani Mthethwa


It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of Thokozani Mthethwa, a member of Pirates Lifesaving Club who was working a seasonal lifeguard in Cape Town.


Thokozani fell off a rescue sled being towed by a jetski whilst on route to assist a distressed kit surfer on Saturday, 28th November 2020. His body was recovered on the 30th November 2020.


During his tenure as a lifeguard he served the community with pride and professionalism.


Thokozani will be remembered for his efforts in keeping with the high ideals of rescue and service which Lifesaving SA endeavors to promote and practice as well as saluted for his heroism……he paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty!


Our sincere condolences are forwarded to families and friends of Thokozani as well as the members of Pirates Lifesaving Club and Lifesaving KZN.


Yours in Lifesaving
