Tribute To Human Rights Activist

July 12, 2011

PROFESSOR KADER ASMAL

Human Rights Activist

1934 – 2011

The Nelson Mandela Museum mourns the passing of its former chairperson, Professor Kader Asmal, a legendary South African who contributed immeasurably to positioning the Museum as a jewel in the national heritage landscape.

Professor Asmal did not brook second best. He had the unique abilities to focus on the detail and identify the priorities, while never losing sight of the bigger picture.

When appointed to lead the Nelson Mandela Museum Council, he served with passion and conviction borne out of a wholehearted belief that Nelson Mandela was a living international symbol of moral rectitude and ubuntu.

He was an innovator who dared to dream big dreams.

Sadly, he did not live to see the centrepiece of his institutional renewal strategy, the renovation and preservation of the Museum’s historic Bhunga Building in Mthatha, come to fruition. The project is due to begin in August.

Professor Asmal was an exceptional head of the Museum Council. He brought with him a lifetime of experience in activism, academia and government leadership.

Although Professor Asmal’s term as head of Council came to an end last year, his impact on the institution will live on for many years to come.

Professor Asmal was truly a legend.,and a hero of our young democracy. To his wife, Mrs Louise Asmal, their sons and grandchildren, the Nelson Mandela Museum says thank you for Kader. He enriched us all.

Hamba Kahle Comrade Chairman!

Khwezi Mpumlwana
CEO, Nelson Mandela Museum
