Statement on the passing on of Andrew Mosane

Johannesburg, Friday, 15 January 2020

He had an infectious smile, he was loud, he was an activist par excellence. He is no more, gone to rest. He has played his part in this earth in the fight for access to HIV and TB treatment. In his words, in him you saw all the SANAC CSF Sectors because he embodied them. When all is said and done, Andrew Mosane was a humanist. We have lost a gallant fighter, an educator, an activist, a friend.

According to Mabalane Mfundisi, Executive Director of Show Me Your Number “Whilst Andrew was currently an employee of Show Me Your Number, he was in fact an employee for the whole SANAC CSF sectors. A leader par excellence. Go well Andrew, go rest. As the saying goes – WHEN A TREE FALLS, SO SHALL IT LIE”.

Steve Letsike, Chairperson of SANAC CSF and Co-Chairperson of SANAC says of Andrew Mosane “He made his presence felt. His contributions were incisive. He was a dependable activist ready and able to champion the cause of People Living with HIV and TB and he carried all sectors with him. He was an educator-par-excellence. Tsela tshweu Druza, until we meet again”.

We will share further details once the family has finalised the funeral arrangements.
