UCT Vice-Chancellor Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng pays tribute to the late Dr Stuart Saunders, who served the university exceptionally well for a remarkable 16 years, holding the role of vice-chancellor from 1981 until 1996.
Dr Saunders died in his sleep following a short illness and had not been ill for some time as UCT news initially reported. UCT conveys heartfelt condolences to his children, Jane and John, the entire Saunders family and to those who knew or worked with him.
