Learning Centre going from Strength to Strength








The Learning Centre sponsored by Gartner SA (Pty) Ltd is going from strength to strength. Since the beginning of the year, Learning Events were held once a month to promote the Learning Centre and to encourage more people to register as students.

Almost 20 Alison Certificates have been issued already in this period of less than three months.

At the April Event one of the guests was a Manager, Samkelo Yeko, from the local Pick n Pay Store who shared with attendees his road to this position and what the requirements are of persons interested in working for a Supermarket in particular. There was also opportunity for questions at the end of his talk which made for some very interesting discussions.

Tebo Backward, who is in charge of the Learning Centre is responsible for the topics of each evening and is very excited in the keen interest in these evenings and the resultant increase in registrations. The Imizamo Yethu residents are indeed privileged to have such an incredible service and facilities available right on their doorsteps.







Well done TeboComputers!

Kenako - Yes, It is Time to Learn!

A Sad Loss for the HBCCA - Arch Griffiths Mketo's Passing





Archbishop Griffiths Mketo, former Vice President of the HBCCA, went home to be with the Lord (and to join his beloved wife Queenie) on the 10th of March this year.  At his well attended memorial service at Iziko Lobomi so many individuals and church representatives paid homage to Tata Mketo for his unwavering service and faithfulness to his family, community, church, friends and colleagues.  In every sphere of his life Tata Mketo made a lasting impact.

 During the service the Chairperson, Ms Lesley McCall, honored Griffiths for his long standing commitment to both Iziko Lobomi and the community of Imizamo Yethu.  His service to the HBCCA spanned almost thirty years.  She further added that Tata Mketo was a gentle man yet full of courage, believed in justice but also in reconciliation .  He walked and demonstrated his faith without compromise for all to see.

 Although retired in 2020 his loss is greatly felt by the HBCCA and our heartfelt condolences go out to the Mketo family at this sad time of their loss. Tata Mketo is the second founding Father to have passed away following the death of Archbishop Nicholas Ndude in January 2021.

 His Lord said to him:

 “Well done good and faithful servant;

you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. 

Enter into the joy of your Lord.

(Matthew 25:21 NKJ).

Iziko Lobomi 'Buzzing' Again!



It is wonderful to see how the activities at Iziko Lobomi are increasing every week. More bookings are beginning to come in and we are even seeing some welcome foreign guests popping in on their township walking-tours.

With South Africa now on Covid Level 1, we are all hopeful that it will remain on this level. A new wave is predicted for the months of May and June of the BA.2 Omicron variant x :-(



Let's All Stay Safe and Bring Normality back to our World!

On the 26th December 2021, at the age of 90, South Africa and the world lost a true icon of peace and reconciliation.

" ...a patriot without equal; a leader of principal and pragmatism who gave meaning to the biblical insight that faith without works is dead."

" ...another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans who have bequeathed us a liberated South Africa.”

President Cyril Ramaphosa


" I’m saddened to learn of the death of global sage, human rights leader, and powerful pilgrim on earth … we are better because he was here,”

Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King


" ...a mentor, a friend and a moral compass for me and so many others”.

Barack Obama, former US President

justice and peace to South Africa
