Hamba kahle, Kader Asmal.

Kairos Southern Africa thanks God for the life and work of Kader Asmal, who passed away yesterday.

He was an inspiration to many of us and served the people of South Africa with distinction, both as

a key anti-apartheid activist in Ireland and also as Minister of Water Affairs and Forestry as well as

Minister of Education.

Lately he has expressed his strong opposition to the so-called “Secrecy Bill” going through

Parliament at the moment, and have had to endure insults from some of those within the

ANC for his opposition to some worrying tendencies within the ANC.

We pray for his family and all those who worked closely with him.

RIP, Kader Asmal.

Rest eternal grant unto him O Lord

And may your light perpetual shine upon him.
