The grown children were present at her funeral, which was held on February 17, 2022. The emotional kids honoured their deceased mother’s efforts in raising them to reach their full potential. “My mother was supportive … who fully provided for her two children.

Kuli Roberts will always be remembered for her good deeds According to Africa Brief, Kuli was a notable activist who was well-known for taking a firm stand on several issues, patriarchy being one of them. She refused to serve as a capitalist tool of patriarchy. As a result, she was fired from many prestigious job positions. “She was opposed to supremacist racism, patriarchy, capitalism, and the anti-black sentiments that pervade this country. She was a fresh and insightful female African voice that sensed the trauma and pain of the majority.”

With all of Kuli’s good deeds combined, her family lost a beloved family member, and South Africa lost a compassionate citizen. Rest in peace, mbokodo!
