This serves to update all in the UPCSA on the changes that were made in the staff of the Central Office.

  1. Ms Bester applied for the termination of her services with the UPCSA, which became effective on the 30th April 2021 (her last official day). She will be coming, as arranged, to facilitate a smooth handing over process.  Ms Mahlangu has served the UPCSA in various capacities and has done well in all her appointments. Her loyalty to the UPCSA has been unquestionable. She will be missed.
  2. The Rev Thembinkosi Nopapaza has been appointed as the Senior Administrative Assistant to the CFO, replacing Ms Bester Mahlangu, with effect from 1 May 2021. The Rev Nopapaza has been in the office to journey with Ms Mahlangu for the last two weeks. Please congratulate the Rev Nopapaza on his appointment.


We are committed to manage the transition well, in such a way that there will be no hiccups on the smooth provision of services. Please bear with us if you will experience some difficulties during this period.  We continue to rely on your prayers and support as we (Tiyo Soga House Staff) do our work, striving to be “The lighthouse of a reconciled community of Christians”.

Warmest regards,

Rev Dr Lungile Mpetsheni
