Change the world


The University will be livestreaming the official provincial funeral in Bizana, in the Eastern Cape, of our late Executive Dean of Health Sciences, Professor Lungile Pepeta, from 08:30 tomorrow (Wednesday 12 August).

As a man who touched and saved so many lives as a healthcare visionary and committed pediatric cardiologist, you are encouraged to share the livestream link with friends, families and others near and far as per his family’s wishes, especially since few will be able to attend the funeral in person.

The link will only be live from 08:30 tomorrow.

An edited version of the funeral will also be shared on our YouTube page at a later date.

In addition, the University will host its own virtual Memorial Service for Prof Pepeta at midday on Friday, 14 August. Details of this will follow.
