Statement on the death of Andrew Mlangeni

The sad loss of Andrew Mlangeni marks not only the passing of a generation prepared to lay down their lives for justice and freedom, but of a leader who continued to model ethical, values-based leadership in the interests of the poor.

Our society owes an inestimable debt to the Rivonia generation, and we owe it to the memory of Baba Mlangeni and his comrades to recover their values and work not for our own personal gain but instead pursue the common good.

I will miss seeing and warmly interacting with Baba at the annual State of the Nation address.

We send our condolences and those of the wider Anglican Church to his family. May he rest in peace, and rise in glory.

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba
