President Cyril Ramaphosa said in a statement he has learned with sadness of the passing of Nomgcibelo Jocelyn Motsuenyane following her loss of her husband, Dr Sam Motsuenyane.

Jocelyn, 92, died last Friday, a day after burying her husband of 70 years, Dr Motsuenyane who was the founder of one of the largest black business organisations – the National African Federated Chamber of Commerce (Nafcoc).

Her funeral will be held on Wednesday and the service will be conducted from Akasia Community Hall in Pretoria. Thereafter she will be laid to rest next to her husband at Zandfontein Cemetery.

The President offered his deep condolences to the Motsuenyane family “as they prepare for Ma Motsuenyane’s funeral tomorrow, 15 May 2024”.

The President said: “As South Africans, we stand by the Motsuenyanes in your moment of compounded loss.

“Sam and Jocelyn Motsuenyane are icons of their generation whose belief in education and entrepreneurship as keys to self-realisation and reliance sustained communities and contributed to the inclusive economy we continue to build today.

“May they rest together in peace at the end of a life of service and upliftment and a union they shared for 70 years.”
