Statement on the passing of Reverend Siyabulela Gidi

The staff and board of Inclusive and Affirming Ministries note with sadness the passing on of Reverend Siyabulela Gidi, who was a changemaker and pioneer by any standard.

Siya, as he was known to us, served as the secretary on our board from May 2012 until his passing on 13 May 2022. Over the last ten years, he became a trusted and formidable part of our team, and his passing leaves a huge void.

We extend our sincere condolences to his wife Kaya and their three boys Oluvo, Chulumanco and Mikhulu; the Anglican community, and his family and friends. May the God of all comfort be with all who mourn the loss of Siya’s life and may his soul rest in peace.
