LETTER OF CONDOLENCE ON THE PASSING OF MS JENNIFER DAVIS-
ESTEEMED MEMBER OF THE ORDER OF OR TAMBO
To the Davis Family:
It is with great sadness that I learned recently of Jennifer’s passing.
I offer you as her family my sincerest condolences and my profound respect for the significant contribution she made to our Struggle for liberation, human rights and education.
I share the sadness felt also by Jennifer’s global circle of friends, colleagues and comrades.
We will remember Jennifer Davis as a patriot who, in the early years of her activism, built global networks and international solidarity at a time when the world was not nearly connected as it is today.
We will remember and honour Jennifer for her fearless tenacity and for the detailed work she performed as a researcher and writer whose insights influenced global forums and the international community to support our fight against apartheid and to support other countries on our continent as they emerged from colonialism.
She was a worthy esteemed Member of the National Order of OR Tambo in recognition of her commitment and contribution to achieving a free, democratic and prosperous South Africa.
May she rest in peace as we continue to build on her extraordinary legacy.
Mr Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa
President of the Republic of South Africa
