South Africa: ‘Hero’ Anti-Apartheid Lawyer, George Bizos, Laid To Rest


By Amechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nelson Mandela’s lawyer, George Bizos, who represented him at his trial for treason, was laid to rest at an emotional state funeral on Thursday.

President Cyril Ramaphosa was among the limited number of dignitaries – consequent to COVID-19 restrictions – alongside some family members who paid glowing tributes to the man who became Mandela’s personal friend and defended human rights to the end of his life.

Bizos, the “hero” anti-apartheid lawyer, passed on at his Johannesburg home last week at the age of 92.
