The new year started with a the sad passing of Mrs. Helen Suzman; the iconic South African politician and anti-apartheid activist. From 1961 to 1974, Mrs. Suzman was the sole parliamentarian in the South African parliament who was opposed to apartheid and was a key figure in the anti-apartheid movement within South Africa. I remember reading about her in the South African Sunday Times as a kid just before the unravelling of the apartheid regime. She will forever remain an inspiration for people across the globe and be remembered for always standing up for what is right even when it was not popular. Rest in Peace.
