It is with great sadness that we need to inform you of the sudden and unexpected passing of our Chamber Vice President, Mr Maxwell Dube last night.
We are greatly saddened at the sudden loss of such an amazing, dedicated and professional man.
Max, as he was fondly known by all, was filled with compassion and drive to assist the businesses and promote all RCCI objectives.
He was the founder and Editor of the Northern Business Review and Cosmo Chronicle paper and gave exposure to small businesses that needed it as well as supporting RCCI with 4 pages of CHAMBER NEWS each month. Max also headed the RCCI EXCO Media Portfolio.
All his peers and colleagues had the utmost respect for him and enjoyed working very closely with Max on many occasions.
He proudly represented chambers at many events, professionally covering the news and presenting true and quality feedback at all times.
He chatted with all at meetings and greeted with a huge smile and warmth, all who crossed his path.
Max’s smile clearly showed his gentle nature and reflected his impeccable integrity and values which he was well known for.
He was truly respected by all who had the privilege to cross his path. Maxwell will be sorely missed.
Allow me to extend our heartfelt condolences on behalf of the RCCI EXCO to his wife Leocardia, his children, family and friends and to all who knew him and worked with him.
May he rest in peace.
10 December 2015, Mr Maxwell Dube was accepted as a member of the elite South African National Editors Forum (SANEF).
