Bad news for South Africans: Anti-apartheid crusade Max Coleman is dead.

Max Coleman, an anti-apartheid crusader, and former human rights commissioner died at the age of 95, which is bad news for South Africans.

On Monday morning, his family released a statement announcing his death. Coleman and his wife founded the Detainees Parents Support Committee in 1981 after their boys were arrested for anti-apartheid actions by the apartheid authorities. The committee provided food, clothing, and legal assistance to detainees, as well as support for their parents.

According to the family's statement, it reads: "We regret to inform you that Dr. Max Coleman passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, 16 January 2022, aged 95. He is mourned and will be forever missed by his loving wife, Audrey, sons Brian, Neil, Keith, and Colin, their partners and children."

"There will be a private funeral service followed by a public memorial to celebrate his life. Details will be announced in due course."


May his soul rest in perfect peace.
