Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) is sending its heartfelt condolences to the family, sports fraternity and friends of one of many talented “Springbok”, Mr. Joost Van der Westhuizen.
We are shocked to hear of this colossal loss of the nation if not the entire globe. We have learnt that he was battling for his life in hospital but we have always prioritized him in our prayers but we respect God’s decision because he takes the ones we most love.
We are saying to his family that we will be with them during this difficult phase, we know that the passing of this “Son of the soil” have deeply wounded your hearts. We are grateful for having borrowed us your son to make a tremendous contribution not only to sports but to the entire humanity. Sports is the great force to advance social cohesion which have been a crises in our country.
Sports fraternity will never forget the role played by Mr Joost in the fraternity, he have broke records which are memorable not only to us but to his counterparts. We salute him for that.
PAC says may your soul rest in peace.
