Mmolawa Laid to Rest

| June 15, 2015

Multitudes thronged Oodi in Kgatleng District, on Saturday (June 13), for the funeral of Mr Kaisara ‘Kaizer’ Mmolawa who passed on last week.

Speakers took turns to describe the humility and the loving kindness that characterised Mr Mmolawa and set him apart from other people.

The former director of the department of information Services, Mr Russ Molosiwa, described Mosimane etsho as Mr Mmolawa was affectionately known by his legion of friends, as a man who was humble to the core.

Mr Molosiwa said this humility made it even difficult for someone to take action against him when he was wrong. “O ne o kgobega marapo go mo tseela dikgato” (one was at a loss to reprimand him for wrong doing).

“He was a well-mannered man and we went together in many trips around the country and he will do his job very well,” the former director said, adding that Mr Mmolawa would often come to his office without even an appointment and discuss with him how best to improve the department.

Mr Molosiwa said, like many other men, the late Mmolawa was scared of visiting doctors when he had health problems.

Mr Mmolawa’s supervisor, Mr Otsisitswe Seabelo said the deceased’s ailment started in 2014 and he was in and out of hospital. He said the family and the department had lost a good and loving man who did his work diligently.

A family member, Ms Popi Mmolawa, said the death of Mr Mmolawa was the will of God as a lot went on during the day he breathed his last.

She encouraged family members, friends and colleagues to accept what had happened because God was in control of all things. Ms Mmolawa further said even doctors at Deborah Retief Memorial hospital did all they could but could not save his life because his blood pressure was too high.

His father in law, Mr Robert Mosupiemang, ran short of words as he could not come to terms with the loss of his son in law who was loving and kind to them.

Mr Mmolawa was born in 1967 in Oodi as the fifth child of Ms Nthepa Mmolawa. He started school in 1974 and completed his Standard Seven in 1980.

He started running a taxi business, which he later left and joined the department of Information Services in 1996 until his death. He left behind a spouse and four children three boys and one girl, his brother and three sisters.
