Honouring the memory of Thokozani Mthethwa

After three continuous days of an extensive search for 23 year old Thokozani Mthethwa, a seasonal City Lifeguard who went missing in the surf during a rescue operation near Muizenberg beach, his body was found early Monday evening, on the shore between Sonwabe and Sunrise Beach. He fell off a rescue sled being towed by a jet ski while on route to assist a kite surfer in distress off St James Saturday, 28 November. The City expresses its heartfelt condolences to his family and friends, as well as his colleagues during this difficult time.’ This is the first staff member that the Recreation and Parks Department has lost in the line of duty. His life will be honoured among the few exceptional men and women, who sacrificed their own lives to save others’ said Mayco member for community services and health Zahid Badroodien.
