UCT mourns Madiba's passing

Together with everyone in the country - and across the world - the University of Cape Town is deeply saddened by the loss of Nelson Mandela.

Madiba taught us all about what it means to be humane in an often inhumane world. His courage and tenacity in fighting for democracy during his earlier years, the triumph of his spirit during his long incarceration, his astute and dignified leadership, and his wise counsel have all exemplified a way of being in the world that we should revere and emulate.

Our thoughts are with the UCT Chancellor, Mrs Graça Machel, and the Mandela family.
