Contribute to the family of Respect Mathebula

Field Ranger, Respect Mathebula, passed away Thursday, 19 July 2018 in an incident which involved a shoot-out between rangers and suspected poachers.

Respect joined SANParks in February 2015 as Field Ranger at Shangoni Ranger Section. In July 2016, he moved to Crocodile Bridge Section in the same position and worked there until he passed away.

“Very few people have the courage and necessary skills to perform this important task other than Rangers, in which Respect was and will forever be part of. Etlela hi kurhula Respect – May your soul rest in peace. You upheld the Ranger values and flew the SANParks flag high with honour. We are poorer with your absence but will continue where you left off”.

Respect leaves behind his wife, Wisdom Ndlovu, their four children, five brothers, two sisters and all other family members.
