Dear Professor Phakeng,
I have been deeply saddened and shocked at the news of the devastation wreaked on University Buildings (and the wonderful Jagger Library) by the fire on Table Mountain.
As both an alumnus and former member of staff at the University of Cape Town, as well as being a fellow Vice-Chancellor, I wanted to send you my thoughts at this difficult time. The staff, students, and fire-fighters are uppermost in mind.
With my best wishes,
