From the Southern African Bishops Conference :
The Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC) has been shocked by the tragic accident which has claimed the two lives of St John Vianney Seminary staff members; Fr Owen Wilcock from the Diocese of Port Elizabeth and Fr Sibusiso Zulu from the Diocese of Eshowe. The other two priests, Fr John Selemela and Fr Ricardo Smuts, are recovering at the Netcare Hospital in Polokwane.
The accident happened along N1 North after Mokopane Toll Plaza on Tuesday afternoon.
We pray for the speedy recovery of the injured.
We extend our condolences to the families of the deceased and to the faithful of Port Elizabeth and Eshowe respectively.
May God grant them eternal rest.

Sister Laurentia (left) and Sister Margaret with Sizakele Mahlangu in Barcelona. Through monies she received from various sources, including fund-raising projects in England, Sister Margaret supported Sizakele’s schooling. Sizakele is now a fully-fledged educator, has her driver’s licence and her own bakkie, her own house, provides for six children (four from relatives who has died) and takes care of her mom’s homestead, even providing for all the unemployed members of her family. Sizakele is a committed Catholic, takes care of many children in her area in Barcelona, advises them, chats to adults, elderly, those in trouble and pain and wisely discerns who else might receive help that Sister Margaret ca provide through the generosity of benefactors in England and Sisters’ fund-raising work.
