Message from the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA) SAIA On The Passing Of Ahmed Mohamed Kathrada

Randburg – The South African Institute of Architects (SAIA) wishes to express its deepest sadness at the passing of a gallant fighter for the liberation of South Africa.

“Ahmed Kathada dedicated his life towards the fight against the ills of the apartheid systems as well as all forms of discrimination. He was part of that great generation of veterans who were incarcerated during the famous Rivonia Treason Trial and remained resolute in their fight towards a non-racial society.”, said Obert Chakarisa, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SAIA.

“Ahmed Kathrada continued to be a voice of reason, not fearing to speak his mind against the current ills of our society. As an Institute comprising of professional architects, SAIA will continue its efforts of making a difference in changing the landscape of the country in particular the quest of pursuing sustainable and responsible design in the architectural profession”, continued Chakarisa.

On behalf of our both our corporate and individual members, SAIA extends its heartfelt condolences to Barbara Hogan, family, friends, government and all the people of our country, as we mourn this gallant fighter.
