Tribute to Bra Hugh Masekela

The MISTRA Council of Advisors, Board of Governors, Management and Staff, sends sincere condolences to Ms Barbara Masekela (MISTRA COA member) and the Masekela family on the passing of Bra Hugh Masekela, a comrade and leader to many, and a true South African legend,

At this profoundly sad time, we acknowledge the extraordinary life he lived, through his musical gift to the liberation of South Africa and the continent, his unwavering, tireless activism in speaking his mind on injustices at every opportunity, locally and globally.

The legacy he leaves, we believe, is a call to reclaim our South African heritage and our culture with pride and to become the new pioneers of Africa’s renaissance.

Our hearts go out to the Masekela family, as South Africa and the world celebrate a life well-lived.
