UFS Pays Tribute To Beyers Naudé
2004-09-17

The University of the Free State (UFS) has extended its heartfelt condolences to the late Dr Beyers Naudé in a letter to the family.

“Dr Naudé’s contribution to the establishment of a non-racial and democratic society in South Africa will forever remain one of the most inspiring chapters of our history,” said Prof Frederick Fourie, Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS.

“As a historically Afrikaans higher education institution committed to building such a society, we celebrate Dr Naudé’s courage in reaching out across the racial, language, religious and cultural divides of the past and in building a shared South Africaness,” said Prof Fourie.

“We need to emulate Dr Naudé’s spirit of commitment to a common humanity and a common nationhood,” said Prof Fourie.
