ANC MOURNS THE PASSING OF RENOWNED HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER PRISCILLA JANA
It is with great sadness that the African National Congress (ANC) learned today of the passing of Priscilla Jana, a renowned human rights lawyer, and an important figure in the struggle for the liberation of South Africa. The passing of Priscilla Jana has robbed the liberation movement and the people of South Africa of one of its most distinguished daughters who served her nation with distinction.
From an early age, Priscilla Jana developed an awareness of the brutality and injustice of apartheid. This conscientization was nurtured early in her life through her first-hand experience of the effects of an unequal and oppressive society.
As one of the most brilliant lawyers in our country, Priscilla Jana could have chosen to selfishly pursue personal wealth and material advancement. Instead, she understood her career as a calling – to serve the people of South Africa, especially the poor and powerless. She placed her skills and expertise in the hands of the liberation movement. Her clients included some of the key political figures as well as the defenseless and downtrodden.
Her determination to fight the vicious and evil system of apartheid saw her joining the underground networks of the African National Congress (ANC). During the 1980s when the regime was unleashing some of its most vicious and repressive machinery against the people through successive states of emergency and trampled upon the rights of activists, Priscilla Jana was one of the few progressive lawyers who provided free support to detainees.
She became the personal attorney of President Nelson Mandela during his incarceration on Robben Island. It has been said of Jana that “at one stage, she represented every single political prisoner on Robben Island”.
After the democratic breakthrough of 1994, she served as a Member of Parliament and South African Ambassador to both the Netherlands and Ireland. Priscilla Jana served as the Deputy Chairperson of the South African Human Rights. She served democratic South Africa with the same passion, commitment, and dedication with which she fought and defeated apartheid.
She produced her biography, Fighting for Mandela, which chronicles her life of extraordinary courage and brave struggle against apartheid. In this book, she writes: “My entire adult life has been dedicated to dismantling the apartheid system and attempting to replace it with something wholesome and good for all South Africans. I cannot regret one minute of it”.
Her selfless and unwavering opposition to apartheid and commitment to the reconstruction and development program is an example worthy of emulation by all those who consider themselves patriots.
The ANC conveys its heartfelt condolences to her family, the mass democratic movement, and the people of South Africa as a whole. We hope they will find strength and comfort in the knowledge that the people of South Africa and the entire progressive world share in their grief.
