IJR sends deepest condolences to Asmal family
The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation extends our heartfelt condolences to the family of the late Professor Kader Asmal, who passed away yesterday.
Dr. Louise Asmal has been a committed member of the Board of the IJR since the organisation’s founding, and the Asmal family’s critical contributions to the struggle for a truly democratic South Africa cannot be overstated.
Professor Asmal was an inspiration to us at the Institute, as indeed he was to many others in this country and around the world. We will miss his leadership, and his courage to keep working for the society we all wish to see. We are ever grateful for his active support and participation in many of our events and initiatives over the last decade.
On behalf of the Institute, our thoughts and prayers are with the Asmal family, and we wish you every strength as you negotiate the difficult days and weeks ahead.
