Former Chief Justice Pius Langa dies after long illness

24 July 2013

 We are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of our colleague, former Chief Justice Pius Langa, who passed away today in Johannesburg after a long illness.

Justice Langa was appointed to the Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA) Board of Control in August 2011. He was a strong support of CAPRISA since it was created in 2002 when he was the Chancellor of the University. We shall sorely miss his wise counsel, support and friendship.

Our heartfelt condolences are with the family of Justice Langa.
