PRESIDENT ZUMA MOURNS NOBEL LAURETTE MS NADINE GORDIMER
 

President Jacob Zuma wishes to convey condolences on the sad passing of one of South Africa's greatest doyens of art and literature, Ms Nadime Gordimer who passed away today, 14 July 2014.

Author Nadine Gordimer won international acclaim as South Africa's first winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991. She was also part of the brave men and women of our country who championed the social role of art, music and literature in advancing the struggle against apartheid and for freedom, equality and democracy.

"South Africa has lost a great patriot, a renowned writer and an outstanding voice for equality and freedom. We wish to express, on behalf of government and the entire population, our sincerest words of condolence to her family, friends and the whole spectrum of the literary community. May her soul rest in peace," said President Zuma.
