Press Release: The HSF is saddened by the passing of Ahmed Mohamed Kathrada

It is with great sadness and deep regret that the Helen Suzman Foundation has been alerted to the death of Ahmed Mohamed Kathrada. He was one of the most prominent figures associated with President Nelson Mandela. He was a man of enormous courage and perseverance.  He was also a man with a keen and warm sense of humour.

His regard for the late Helen Suzman was widely known and on the occasion of the book launch of Lord Renwick’s biography of Helen Suzman he spoke very warmly of Helen.

Our deepest condolences to Barbara Hogan, other members of his family, and his friends and comrades.
