South Africa: A young man with a bright future and a delicate spirit is how McDonald Tsholofelo Tlhale (39) will be remembered by those close to him. A memorial service held in his honour at the Embassy Hall in Mahikeng today, Friday 24th, was nothing short of flashbacks of how Tlhale touched the lives of those around him.

Affectionately known as ‘Softie’ to his peers, Tlhale had a short-lived experience of the career path which he always longed for in law enforcement.


“In the short time that we worked with him, he made such a great impact, so much that his absence will be felt immensely. He proved to be a great asset, very innovative and had a hands-on approach to his work,” said Mamoremi Madiehe, who was Tlhale’s former supervisor.

Speaking on behalf of the department, the Director for Human Resource Management, Ms Thobeka Leteane, said Tlhale’s demise was a great loss for the department.

“What an honour and privilege it was to work with someone like him. You can work with people for years and not feel any impact, and yet we were fortunate to have someone who was so dedicated and passionate about serving the public.

“On behalf of management and the entire staff, we would like to thank the family for affording us an opportunity to walk this journey of life with this gentle giant. We say that: ‘may you find solace and comfort in God, for nothing is possible without him’,” said Leteane, who extended comfort to the Tlhale family on behalf of the department.

Nothing can separate us from the love of God. The Bible says God will never leave nor forsake us. In life and death, His glory prevails. May the soul of McDonald Tsholofelo Tlhale rest in eternal peace.

McDonald Tlhale, who worked under the Transport Regulations Chief Directorate, passed away following a short illness and will be buried at the Tlhale household on Saturday, 25th of March 2023, in Ganalaagte at 7 am.
