Mr Speaker, I move without notice:
That the House - 1) notes with profound sadness the death on Friday, 7 August 2009, of Dr Thamsanqa Wilkinson Kambule;
2) further notes that Dr Kambule, in his lifelong career in teaching, has taught, amongst others, Nobel Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu, Jackie Selebi, Communications Minister General Siphiwe Nyanda, Pansy Tlakula of the Independent Electoral Commission and Kaizer Motaung, to mention but a few;
3) recognises that in 2002 Dr Kambule received an Order of the Baobab in gold from former President Thabo Mbeki for his exceptional contribution to mathematics education, human development and community service;
4) believes that he was a true teacher who inspired his learners to aim high despite the daunting challenges of the time; and
5) conveys its condolences to the Kambule family, his peers and friends.
