Prof Soyinka’s Condolence Letter

April 7, 2013

from Cape Town, SA

To Dr. Kayode Fayemi
Ekiti State
My dear Kayode,

I have just picked up the news on Internet. My most sincere condolences. I met your late deputy Funmi Adeyinka, only a few times, but was instantly struck by her unassuming grace, intelligence and political commitment. Her departure will be felt as a great loss to your administration, to the people of Ekiti State, but most especially to her family, to whom I request that you be so kind as to convey my message of fortitude in the face of this grievous bereavement.

Wole Soyinka
