7 July 1928 – 19 Aug 2016
A special thought for our late father today…
He was a teacher for more than 30 years, a period of uphill struggle that powered him to go on this great journey of freedom and opportunities. He ended his career as Inspector of Primary Schools.
His willingness to help and advise his students as well as his academic staff and the poise and self-confidence with which he would tackle any situation earned him the respect of his profession as a whole. His faith in the dignity of the common man was unshakeable and constitutes the cornerstone of his life and work.
It is in this perspective that we believe a proper understanding of his ideals and living up to them constitute the most eloquent and lasting tribute that can be paid to him:
