Sudden passing of Veli Ntombela, Head of Tax at SNG Grant Thornton

It is with great sadness to inform you of the untimely passing on of our esteemed colleague and friend, Mr Veli Ntombela, Director and Head of Tax.

Veli was a highly respected Tax practitioner and an admitted Advocate of the High Court of South Africa. In 2018 Veli stepped up to serve as a Chairperson of the Board of Directors within the firm. Veli was an inspiring mentor, a great steward and an exceptional servant leader; he will be sorely missed.

Victor Sekese, Chief Executive of SNG Grant Thornton, said, ‘It was such a great privilege to know Veli personally and to work alongside him over the years. He has made an indelible mark in our lives through his exceptional leadership and his passion for life and people. We will honour his memory by diligently continuing his legacy of generosity and advocating a better life for the underprivileged. As the SNG Grant Thornton family, we mourn the loss of this remarkable man, our dear brother and friend. We extend our heartfelt and sincere condolences to the Ntombela family and friends. May the Almighty strengthen and comfort them during this difficult time.’
