Hanef Bhamjee OBE
1946 -2022

"Hanif touched the lives of all he came into contact with.  He had so much to give in love.  His honesty and sincerity inspired us all. Hence he played a significant role in shaping the thinking of so many of us.  A revolutionary , a freedom fighter, a fearless fighter championing the cause for social justice.  He carved his name and that of his SA family and his Cardiff family and friends with with dignity. An internationalist who inspired our thinking in a unique way. As an activist he had his awkward moments but together with  the Welsh Anti- apartheid movement Hanif made a huge contribution to the liberation history of South Africa .  This is carved in history . His legacy will continue to inspire us to struggle for a better life for all."
