A tribute to Riaan Cruywagen

Many of us still fondly remember the active role you played during your time in Durban and we are sure that your retirement is going to leave a great gap in the ranks of the SABC, not only that of the Afrikaans service.

Having served on the Regional Board in Durban for several years, and without any disrespect to your predecessors, it was interesting to witness the wonderful spirit that you brought to the Regional Office, but also that you instilled in the staff during your term of office here. 

It must also be said that your wife Riana played a similar sparkling role.

My wife and I wish you well in your retirement and hope that you and Riana will be spared for many more happy, healthy years.
