It is with great sadness that last week we lost one of the most courageous, selfless and vibrant nurses, Khulisani “Khuli” Nkala, to Covid-19…
I personally have worked with Khuli since early 2016, I am truly devastated to have lost such a fantastic, genuine, loyal & happy gentleman. He was not only a nurse at Local Care Force but a good friend of mine, we would often chat at length about family, friends and work. I used to see him three to four times a week in the gym, no matter how bad a day I was having his infectious smile would brighten my day and we always took the time to have a chat each night.
In the 4 years I have known Khuli I have never known anybody get so many positive compliments from both clients & nurses. So highly regarded amongst his colleagues is a true testament to the incredible man he was. Khuli was somebody I would often go to for advice and no matter how busy he would make time for me. I know that it was not only myself at Local Care Force that he made an impact on, all the staff who knew him have such lovely comments to make…
“Khuli always had a smile and made everyone who met him feel at ease. He really cared about others and this shone through in everything he did. To say he was popular is an understatement, everyone knew Khuli and everyone who met him only ever had good things to say about him. He really made a difference in the lives of the people who were lucky enough to know him.” – Amelia
“Khuli was one of the nicest people I had the pleasure of working with. He was adored by all clients and patients wherever he worked. He was a friend to many amongst our LCF Nurses and will be deeply missed. His devotion to his Nursing practice was simply amazing and he was never without a smile. A friendly, kind and compassionate soul he will be dearly dearly missed within LCF and by everyone that knew him.” – Katie
“Khuli was truly such a gentleman, and one of the kindest people I have ever worked with. His integrity and dedication to nursing was admirable, and this is proved further by the deep sorrow felt by both clients and colleagues who had the pleasure of working with him. He will be sorely missed by all at LCF.” – Lois
“Khuli was an asset to the nursing community and a pleasure to work with. He was always polite, professional and willing to do what he could to help. We would chat about our children and laugh at the crazy things they got up to, he will be sorely missed and no one can replace him. My thoughts and prayers go to his lovely family and this devastating time.” – Emma
“Khuli was a genuine and kind hearted man, who was loved and respected by all clients, colleagues and patients that he worked with. He always had a smile when I saw him and never failed to ask how I was. He will be greatly missed by all at LCF and everyone who knew him.” – Ann
Khuli will be missed tremendously. My heartfelt condolences go out to Khuli’s family at this time.
