Gulshera and I went to Prince Mduduzi Hlophe's funeral today, held at the Bhuqu Sportsfield in Bhomela. Prince became involved in the twinning when the Time Travel group were here in May 2008. He met Ebbe, Helen, Carina and Bobbo at their home in Oslo Beach, and attended the Time Travel workshop, where he was elected on to the Time Travel committee.

Prince became ill 2 weeks before his death and I'm sad for him, his family and all the people in whose life he featured. Too many young South Africans are dying, and with a person like him, a lot of history has died as well.
