Moses Teboho Mofokeng was born in 1949, the fifth and last born son of the late Evangelist Wilfred Mofokeng and the late Mahadi Mofokeng (née Chaane).
He was born in Stofberg Gedenk Skool now Groenpunt Prison in Viljoensdrift, Free State, where his father was training for the ministry of the NG Sending Kerk.
He grew up in Gelukspan Mission Hospital, in Lichtenburg district where his parents were stationed from 1952.
Mofokeng attended Uitkyk Public School (later Reitsositse Primary) in Uitkyk, in 1956 and Boitseanape Technical School in Montshiwa, Mafikeng, in 1964.
Bra Moss, as he was affectionately known, moved to Johannesburg with a construction company that he worked for, then later worked as a salesman for a lights manufacturing company and for a few furniture stores in the city.
In 1975, he married Lebohang Masithela, the daughter of the late Evangelist Malefane and Anna Masithela, and their union was blessed with two sons and a daughter. They lived at Mosikili section in Katlehong, on the East Rand.
He also worked for Glaxo pharmaceutical company in Germiston before starting his business as a taxi owner and a shopkeeper in Katlehong.
Mofokeng was a committed member of the NG Kerk in Afrika, later on called Uniting Reformed Church, where he served as an elder at Pokello congregation in Katlehong.
He moved to Lotlhakane village in Mafikeng in 2009 after the death of his father.
Bra Moss will be remembered for making lasting friendships easily.
He was a generous soul with an enterprising spirit, but he never made wealth because he gave away too easily. He loved the church and sang from the Hosanna hymn book very well.
A sharp dresser, he loved clothes and style and had a mischievous sense of humour. A proud Mosotho man who cherished his culture and loved the Mofokeng family while taking great interest in their wellbeing.
Mofokeng died at Thelle Mogoerane Hospital in Vosloorus on Friday after a long illness.
Bra Moss is survived by his wife Lebohang; sons Thabiso and Lesley, daughter Palesa, daughter-in-law Bongiwe, grandchildren Leseli and Chapatso. He also lives behind siblings Jerry, Takatso, sister Tshidiso, three sisters-in-law, cousins, nephews and nieces.
Robala ka kgotso Mofokeng wa Tshehlo!
