MLM Mourns Death of Council Speaker
It is with great sadness to acknowledge the passing of our Council Speaker Hon Pontsho Macdonald Tabane after a short illness.
The death of Councillor Tabane, an elected servant of the people, leaves a gaping void in the sphere of Local Government and has robbed Council and the community at large of a foot soldier in our fight against poverty, inequality and unemployment as he made a great contribution in Mahikeng as a Councillor.
Cllr Pontsho Macdonald Tabane joined Mahikeng Local Municipality as a Councillor in 2004. He was overwhelmingly elected as a Ward Councillor of Ward 20 in 2006, 2011 and 2016 respectively.
At Council he was deployed at various positions of responsibility which include:
- MMC for Communications and Public Relations
- MMC for Corporate Support Services
- Council speaker from 17 August 2016 until his untimely death
Whist it is indeed sad to be separated from him; we draw solace from his sterling contributions to make a difference in the lives of ordinary residents of Mahikeng
The memorial service of the late Cllr Tabane will be on 25 October 2017 at Mmabatho Civic Centre at 10h00. Funeral service will be on Saturday 28 October 2017 at Mmabatho Civic Centre at 07h00.
May his soul rest in peace.
