The FW de Klerk Foundation mourns the loss of a brave warrior for democracy, justice and non-racialism. Ahmed Mohamed Kathrada, or Uncle Kathy as he was fondly called, leaves an indelible mark on generations of South Africans. His towering grace and humility leave a long shadow in a country he loved and served so unselfishly. It behooves this generation of South Africans to continue his lifelong principled quest for non-racialism and equality.
To Barbara Hogan, the Kathrada family and his legions of friends, we pay our respects.
Hamba kahle Ahmed Kathrada.
