Message of Condolence for the Passing of Mr. Andrew Mlangeni
It is with great sadness that I learnt about the passing of Mr. Andrew Mlangeni.
I would like to convey my sincerest condolences to the people of South Africa, his family and friends. Mr. Mlangeni will be fondly remembered not only for his great contributions to South Africa, but also for his wit and sense of humour.
Since his release from the prison in 1989, our colleagues had the privilege of engaging with Mr. Mlangeni on numerous occasions and were inspired by his warmth, humility and dedication to attain a free and equal society.
During this difficult time, my thoughts and prayers are with his family.
