Open letter to South Africa’s students‚ universities and government‚ represented by Minister in the .
My brother Momothi Cedric Temane has become the victim of an illegal firearm.
Cedric, who was shot dead last week, is the last born child of Francina Temane, owner of the once popular and now defunct Roba Letheka car wash in Tshepisong on the West Rand.
Cedric, who lived in Tshepisong, was formerly of Moepeng Street in Dobsonville.
My brother and I were so close while we were growing up that I could see myself in him. He had the most pleasant countenance.
He was extremely neat and genteel. His conversations were always very pleasant because he was witty, naturally cheerful and had a ready smile.
Everything he did, he did freely and with determination and love.
On August 4 2008 Cedric was supposed to start working permanently for Total Gas SA in Chamdor on the West Rand after a four-month probation period.
This job would probably have helped him realise his dream of asking his childhood sweetheart's hand in marriage.
Cedric, who will be buried tomorrow, is survived by his mother, grandmother, four aunts, two brothers, his daughter and four nieces.
The service, which will be held at 2788 Main Road, Tshepisong, will start at 9:30am.
The cortege will leave for the Roodepoort Cemetery at 11:30am.
