Commemorating the Legacy of a Valued Community Leader, of Selaelo Mafa Mamabolo: A Pillar of the Melusi Community.

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of community leader Selaelo Mafa Mamabolo. A devoted husband, father of three, and brother to GRT-Inspired fieldworker Mosibudi Mamabolo, Mr. Mamabolo left an indelible mark through his 15+ years of service in Melusi. As a prominent SANCO member, Mr. Mamabolo’s acts positively impacted many lives. When break-ins plagued the Melusi Clinic, he rallied community night patrols to ensure safety. His collaborative efforts with residents led to the construction of secure palisade fencing around the clinic premises.

Mr Mamabolo also played a key role in the implementation of the GRT-Inspired project in Melusi. As part of the leadership team, he was instrumental in raising awareness about the project through the distribution of flyers and going door-to-door to raise awareness. By ensuring that the community understood the significance of the project and facilitating access for fieldworkers, he also demonstrated a commitment to advancing healthcare and empowering the community through knowledge and participation.

To celebrate his life, a memorial service was held to honour Mr. Mamabolo on April 26th. He will be laid to rest in his hometown of Botlokwa, Limpopo, on Saturday, May 4th. As we grieve this loss, we celebrate Mr. Mamabolo’s remarkable legacy built on integrity, service, and unity. His spirit will continue inspiring all who knew him to uplift their communities.
