THE Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) expressed sadness and shock yesterday at the death of its former co-chairperson, Edward Mvuseni Ngubane.

Said LSSA co-chairpersons Krish Govender and Jan Stemmett: “He continued to make valuable and measured input in the affairs of the profession through his role as a council member of the KZN Law Society, his membership of the Black Lawyers’ Association and his participation in several specialist committees of the LSSA,” He had been a mentor for many younger practitioners, they added.
