Tribute to the late Nelson Mandela:
International Patron of the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre 2001-2013
The loss of this extraordinary and humane man will be deeply felt by his family and the people of South Africa and our sympathies go out to them. It has been an enormous privilege for the Hawke Centre to have the patronage of one of history’s most remarkable figures, Nelson Mandela, since 2001, resulting from his admiration of Bob Hawke, and his belief in what we were doing at this Centre.
Farewell to our ‘friend of the world’ Mandela - from all staff, volunteers and supporters of the Hawke Centre. More.
Elizabeth Ho OAM
Inaugural Director of the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre
