It is with great sadness that PsySSA notes the passing on of Mr Elias Makwe. A clinical psychologist by profession, Mr Makwe dedicated his life to the assistance of those most in need of psychological assistance practicing in some of the most impoverished areas in South Africa. Most of us will remember his smile and the gentle way in which he always interacted. His presence in PsySSA structures will be missed. PsySSA expresses condolences to the Makwe family during this trying time.
PsySSA experienced another loss during June with the passing on of Prof Peter Fridjhon. Prof Fridjhon served as the Statistics editor of the South African Journal of Psychology under Prof Norman Duncan’s editorship. He continued to assist with the journal over the years and most recently was part of the editorial board of the journal. PsySSA extends its deepest condolences to Professor Fridjhon’s family.
