1 CELEBRATING HER LIFE A PERSONAL TRIBUTE TO MY SISTER LUYANDA - A.K.A. LULU KUBAYI SERVING OTHERS: HER Unique Purpose for existence. Ms. Luyanda Lulu Kubayi: A great leader in her own right, was first experienced as a Servant Leader at home and later extended to others. This simple fact was central to her greatness. Her true leadership emerged as her primary motivation, and a deep desire to help others. Hamba Kahle Sulando! ALL GRATITUDE TO: The ANC (for providing my sister with a 2 nd home). The ANC Womens League – for keeping her busy, nothing is as lethal as an idle mind – not only does it poison itself, but it also destroys families, communities and a whole nation – before it finally devours itself. The Women of Molapo in general and the families from which they emerge, behind every STRONG AND ARTICULATE WOMAN, theres a STRONG MAN)! The Women ba Stokvel for honing my sisters entrepreneurial skills - they trained and prepared her adequately to effectively serve the Local Branch of the ANC. Lulama, Mosidinyana,Lulu Moraka (MLM)

2 My Sister Luyanda Lulu was different things to different people. To the African National Congress (ANC): We were soundly advised at her memorial service, that she was: A Leader in her own right. The ANC confirmed the following Leadership attributes, Wow!: 1. Exemplary: 2. Servant: 3. Transformational (paraphrased): ATTESTING TO THE ANCs OBSERVATION,VIEW AND EXPERIENCE OF MY SISTER: EXAMPLARY LEADER: She would never ask you to go where she hasnt been OR where she was not willing to go. She made best use of her talents, energy and time. The ANC also reminisced her OWN unconventional conflict resolution, referral system and processes! ATTESTING TO THE ANCs OBSERVATION,VIEW AND EXPERIENCE OF MY SISTER: EXAMPLARY LEADER: We were informed that she would deliberate and resolve on the spot most matters brought to her by some Community Members. A Senior Member of the Local ANC Branch / Ward 33, referred to her as Actively Leading and Participating. She would also refer to the powers that be, those matters deemed key / unresolvable, to the Local Executive Structure of her ANC Branch. It was also confirmed that she had a habit of following-through all matters, to ensure that most matters were resolved. We were also soundly informed that she would allow her Comrades and / or the Molapo Community to utilize any / all resources that she had in her home to try and alleviate the suffering of others – all of this, without requesting any compensation and / or Higher Position anywhere in all the structures.

3 CELEBRATING HER LIFE A PERSONAL TRIBUTE TO MY SISTER LUYANDA - A.K.A. LULU KUBAYI ATTESTING TO THE ANCs OBSERVATION, VIEW AND EXPERIENCE OF MY SISTER: EXAMPLARY LEADER: She took decisions – a rare Leadership trait. Once she took a decision (good OR bad) she stuck to her guns. If you had her support – THEN, you had it! She would literally fight your wars for you – intellectually and physically, My Sister Luyanda would be there for you UNTIL SHE DECIDES OTHERWISE! She ALWAYS told her truth NOT Your truth: However, she was always open to negotiation if one needed her to understand, envision and / or support some other truth! About Luyandas Exemplary Character: She unpretentiously led out of who she was, doing what she did from the inside out. ATTESTING TO THE ANCs OBSERVATION, VIEW AND EXPERIENCE OF MY SISTER: SERVANT LEADER: She succeeded in everything she did through Self- awareness: She was motivated ONLY by her desire to serve. She assumed the position of servant in her relationships with her Comrades, Community Leaders and others. Through her True Self-awareness, she unconsciously taught others selflessness. Apart from consistently rolling up her sleeves at home and within the Molapo Community / Ward 33, she kept her ego in check and by doing so, she became even more effective in her own right as a leader.

4 CELEBRATING HER LIFE A PERSONAL TRIBUTE TO MY SISTER LUYANDA - A.K.A. LULU KUBAYI ATTESTING TO THE ANCs OBSERVATION, VIEW AND EXPERIENCE OF MY SISTER: LUYANDA : SERVANT LEADER: Luyanda had a more humane leadership style to her (as she raised others, they raised her to higher levels of motivation and morality). She Inspired others to achieve great personal results, through leading by example, she also used her persuasive character to urge them on in spite of any difficulties ahead: *The Local ANC Branch fondly reflects on her feisty and yet successful electricity wars on behalf of her community! She motivated her Comrades and other associates and community members more positively than negatively. Her enlightened Leadership demonstrated service, not selfishness. As a leader, she grew more and lasted longer by placing the well-being of all above the well-being of self alone. The paradox of my sisters life is that, by being consciously selfless, she enhanced herself. Have you ever been in a group situation where someone took control of the situation by conveying a clear vision of the groups goals, a marked passion for the work and an ability to make the rest of the group feel recharged and energized? THEN: Youve been with My Sister Luyanda a.k.a. Lulu. Lulama, Mosidinyana,Lulu Moraka (MLM)

5 ATTESTING TO THE ANCS VIEW AND EXPERIENCE OF MY SISTER: TRANSFORMATIONALLEADER (Paraphrased): Luyanda had a more humane Leadership Style to her (as she raised others, they raised her to higher levels of motivation and morality). She inspired others to achieve great personal results, through leading by example, she also used her persuasive character to urge them on in spite of any difficulties ahead: *The Local ANC Branch fondly reflected on her feisty but successful electricity wars on behalf of her community! We were pleasantly surprised to learn that She still motivated her Comrades, her associates and other community members more positively than negatively – in spite of her frailty lately, WOW! Her style appealed to the higher needs of each individual she encountered OR each person who passed through the doors of her home. IF I WERE TO USE SYMBOLS AND / OR WORDS TO DESCRIBE TO DESCRIBE MY SISTER: LUYANDA LULU KUBAYI – ID EXPRESS MYSELF WITH SUCH WORDS AS: Love; Peace; Forgiveness; Humility; Honesty; Self-Control; Compassion; Respect for others; Tenacious; Argue dont Shout: Constraints on the possible – M. Nyerere. Lulama, Mosidinyana,Lulu Moraka (MLM)

6 ALL GLORY TO THE CREATER OF THE UNIVERSE AND ALL THAT EXISTS IN IT. On the 06/02/2014, I saw for the last time, my sisters cancer riddled body and something in me moved… I made an undertaking to myself, that henceforth I will intensify my plan to love, no matter who hates that, cause I only live once. Having said that, one is also acutely conscious that there are people whom one can ONLY LOVE FROM A DISTANCE, and YES. For those who fall in this category, INDEED, and henceforth, I will love them from a distance, lest their negative elements rub off. Fellow congregants, please allow me to thank the Creator for affording me this opportunity to share His love and compassion with others today. I know that as I step out to give of myself, He will (as ALWAYS) use me to be a blessing to others who are God fearing. I thank Him for His goodness and mercy, which follow me all the days of my life. Mosidi, Lulu Moraka. Lulama, Mosidinyana,Lulu Moraka (MLM)
