He passed away on Sunday, 21 July 2019.
Colonel Ramesh worked many match days as the VOC Commander at PPC Newlands.
“We worked together for about five seasons and what stood out, was the level of dedication he came with to every game to PPC Newlands. His main priority was the safety and security of the people,” said Clifford Dodgen, PPC Newlands Stadium & Operations Manager.
“This is a great loss for SAPS and the community as the Colonel was a hardworking, dedicated and very accommodating man, but what set him apart was the fact that he was, when it was all said and done, a gentleman and upstanding citizen of this country,” he added.
WPCA CEO Nabeal Dien expressed his condolences: “On behalf of WPCA and all our staff who had the pleasure of working with Colonel Ramesh, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Colonel Ramesh’s family and we wish them strength during this extremely difficult time.”
