Business Connection suffers the wrong kind of loss

I'm writing this post on the passing of Leetile Benjamin Mophatlane, who up until a few days ago headed BCX, the largest African integrator, who passed away suddenly on the 11'th of June 2014.

As a South African, and as a business owner, I wish to thank Benjamin Mophatlane for what he accomplished for African IT Companies. We have a breadth of reach within South Africa and Africa, for which BCX, headed under Benjamin has contributed greatly. As IT Professionals, we owe a lot to Benjamin, and the man that he was.

I extend my heartfelt condolences for the Mophatlane family. As a husband and a father, I cannot imagine a greater loss, than the loss the family is suffering. As a family we open our hearts to those who are left behind, and celebrate with you the life which was.

We honour the life of Leetile Benjamin Mophatlane, and mourn his passing.

As Africans we must celebrate each other, and so from one African to all other Africans, we remember Benjamin, what he stood for and must press forward with the ideals and values that he stood for, to make Africa great. If you're following on twitter, please tweet using #BenMophatlane, send your condolences to  and help honor the memory of Benjamin. #RememberBenjamin
