The WRC saddened by the passing of Dr Andre van Niekerk
We know we are not the only ones who will miss Andre desperately. I am at a loss for words. There is nothing for me to say that will make Esthie and her family’s loss easier, but know that we are sending you love and support. We hope you can understand what we can't put into words.
Andre was an intellectual, an academic, a teacher, an engineer, a mentor… he was all these, but he was much, much more. In a world of cynics, Andre always held the candle of hope. His heart and his kindness will always be remembered, and his integrity and ethos will live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing and working with him.
