Bob Mfeka

Bob Mfeka was born at Inanda. He was really helpful man both at church and in the community of Inanda where he was born. He attended United Congregational Church of South Africa (UCCSA) where his passion for community started. Bob Mfekas love for people passed the borders of his church to the community of Inanda and the surroundings whereby he motivated the youth and gave advice to the people who needed advice. Bob was gifted in technology. He was helpful both at church and in the community for his expertise in the use of audio visual equipment where he helped in documenting and recording church and community events.

Bob  never chose which person to help or not. He helped everybody who needed his help.  Bob died while helping a neighbor who came knocking to his house at midnight suffering from labor pains. Bob rushed the neighbor to the hospital. On his way back home Bob was run over by a car and he died in the scene while crossing the hospital road going back to his car.
