Bukelwa Jennifer Obituary, Death – The Working Group, Partners, and Membership of the Southern African Alliance on Youth Empowerment (SAAYE) would like to extend their deepest condolences to the Voko family on the passing of Ms. Bukelwa Jennifer VOKO at such a young age. Her passing came as a shock to everyone. Her departure came as a complete surprise. It is thought that Ms. Bukelwa Jennifer VOKO passed died on Tuesday, November 15th, 2022 in the privacy of her own home in Cape Town, South Africa. These are the details that we have available to us. During the years 2016 through 2019, Ms. Voko was hired by SAAYE and served in the capacity of SAAYE’s first Regional Coordinator.
During this period, she also held another position within the organization. She played a crucial part in the establishment of SAAYE and the institutions that make up the organization in nine different SADC countries, including Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, the Kingdom of Eswatini (Swaziland), Namibia, Mozambique, South Africa, and Botswana. Other countries that are included in this list are Namibia, Mozambique, and South Africa. Her position as Regional Coordinator allowed her the ability to take on this task, and she did so without hesitation. These nation chapters had Ms. VOKO’s complete attention as well as assistance in the form of technical support, which she gave by making sure that they were able to put into effect measures that addressed the problem of youth unemployment in their respective nations.
approaches that offered solutions to the one-of-a-kind issues that were being encountered in the region She also ensured that SAAYE established and maintained its regional presence by participating in three consecutive SADC Civil Society Fora and ensuring that specific youth employment issues were placed at the center of the regional civil society agenda. She did this by ensuring that SAAYE was able to maintain its regional presence. She accomplished this goal by working to ensure that particular concerns around young employment were brought to the top of the agenda for the regional civil society. It was agreed to proceed in this manner so that SAAYE may improve its ability to meet the needs of the young people living in the surrounding area.
Ms. VOKO will be remembered for all of eternity as a result of the appealing and reassuringly professional air that she exuded. Because of this, it was quite simple for young people and country coordinators from all around the region to work together with her. There were some of these young people who were even of an age where they could have been her sons and daughters. During her tour of duty, she performed not just as the SAAYE Regional Coordinator but also as a mother, sister, aunt, coworker, and friend. She was responsible for all of these roles simultaneously. Her primary responsibility consisted of serving as a SAAYE Regional Coordinator.
The news of her passing has left me and everyone else here at SAAYE in a state of deep anguish. She served as an inspiration for each and every one of us, and she will continue to play that role in the years to come. We would like the Voko family, as well as her friends, relatives, and neighbors, to know that we are sorry for your loss and that we are thinking of all of you at this difficult time. Our sympathies are with you all. We want you to know that we are thinking of you with kind thoughts, so please take comfort in knowing that. During this time of sorrow, we are grieving along :
