Mpho Ndebele: The disability sector will be poorer, we lost a champion that was not hesitant to speak out and stand out for the cause of all disabilities even for us parents and our children. We will miss that smile that lighten and brighten the room and that strong walk when you entered the room. We thank God, your parents for blessing us with such a beautiful human being. You will forever be in our hearts……


“I met Mpho once in a surprise party, I got an opportunity to actually speak to her and I was like WOW what a free soul, loving and full of life this lady is. I thank God we met; she left a mark in my life.”

“Mpho was excited and passionate as usual about issues of disability raising the
importance of looking at the African protocol they have just developed at ADA.”

“My name is Eddie Tsubella. I’m currently working for DeafNET as Sign Language and Communication Officer I’m a Coda I started interpreting In the early 2000 Sign language interpreting was not my field- I used to interpret for my friends who are Deaf in our community. I was not exposed to professional interpretation Some of the seasoned interpreters would gossip about my lack of experience Mpho encouraged me to focus on my career as an interpreter and to never mind naysayers. She was always giving good advice to African children. I gained a lot from her.”
