ANCWL pays tribute to Ilse Naude
Johannesburg - Ilse Naude, widow of anti-apartheid activist Beyers Naude, planted the seed of non-racialism in her husband, the ANC Women's League said in a tribute on Wednesday.
Naude died, aged 98, from a heart attack last Thursday.
"Ilse Naude will be remembered as a strong woman who stood by her husband," said Troy Martens, ANCWL spokesperson.
Martens said Naude was a "pillar of strength standing by, supporting and encouraging her husband's efforts which helped shape the South Africa we live in today".
The couple would be remembered and honoured for embracing and nurturing a non-racial country, the league said.
