The Southern Africa-Indian Ocean Division is in mourning, following the death of sister Savie Maphosa, the Division President’s wife. Sister Savie rested in the Lord, on the 29th of September, 2019 at Kloof hospital in Pretoria, South Africa.
Born on the 2nd of February, 1960, sister Savie married Dr. Solomon Maphosa on the 28th of May, 1978 and there were blessed with three children: Yenzile, Dumo and Ntando and she had two sons in law: Edwin Yenzile’s husband and Mnqweno, who is Ntando’s husband. Sister Savie was blessed with five grandchildren: Moses, Sarah, Ntombi, Lauren and Sokwakhana. Before her death, sister Savie was serving at the SID Treasurer’s Department as a senior accountant, a position she held until her untimely death.
Passionate about evangelism, sister Savie was very active in the Voice of Prophecy Bible study lessons, where she pointed many to our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
During Gauteng 2018 sharing hope and healing sister Savie was very instrumental in the formation of the community pathfinders, where she together with her church members at Rayton, established community pathfinder clubs and dozens were baptized as a result of her evangelism work. Sister Savie is survived by her husband, Dr. Solomon Maphosa, three children and five grandchildren. We continue to pray for strength and comfort to our Division President, Dr Solomon Maphosa and his family.
NB: The late Sister Savie will be laid to rest at Woodlands Cemetery in Pretoria East, in South Africa.
