The Slovo Park Community Development Forum (SPCDF) and SERI mourn the passing of Mohau Melani (3 September 1977 – 31 October 2017), founding Chairperson of the SPCDF. 

Mohau was the main deponent in the Slovo Park case wherein the City of Johannesburg was ordered to upgrade the Slovo Park Informal Settlement in terms of the UISP. He was instrumental in getting this case to the Court and ultimately achieving a positive outcome. His passing is a great loss to his family, friends and the informal settlement as a whole.


A memorial service will be held at Slovo Park Informal Settlement. All welcome.
