The Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, the Most Revd Dr Thabo Makgoba, has sent condolences to the family of the late struggle leader, Joe Matthews, describing him as 'a man of the highest principles' whom 'the country owes a considerable debt of gratitude'.
'We give thanks to God for him, and we owe it to his legacy to continue to pursue excellence in every sphere with the same integrity' Dr Makgoba went on to say, noting that he had shared the same high standards and aspirations as his father, ZK Matthews, in dedicating his long and distinguished life of service to the freedom and well-being of South Africa and all its citizens.
He assured the Matthews family of the prayers of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, as they prepare for Saturday's funeral, which will be held at St George's Cathedral, Cape Town.
