The Helen Suzman Foundation sends its condolences to Vernie Petersen's Family

Helen Suzman Foundation | Feb 27, 2011
It is with great regret that we have heard of the death of Vernie Petersen, Director General of the Department of Sport and Recreation.

He was previously a National Commissioner of Correctional Services. In his dealings with the broad community and his engagement with NGO’s, Vernie was a model of courtesy, helpfulness and dedication. He epitomised what is best about our public service. His death is a great loss to the broader community. We wish to express our condolences to his family, his colleagues and his staff.
