Anti-apartheid Icon Suzman Dies Print E-mail


ImageHelen Suzman, a celebrated South African MP and anti-apartheid campaigner, has died at the age of 91.

Ms Suzman, a member of parliament first for the United Party and later the liberal Progressive Party, was an outspoken critic of apartheid.

For 13 years, Suzman, the daughter of Lithuanian Jews, was the only MP to openly condemn South Africa's whites-only apartheid regime.

She was made an honorary dame by the Queen in 1989.
