EARLIER this month, the last President of South Africa under apartheid, F W de Klerk, recorded an extraordinary video which was apparently intended to establish his legacy. He had been suffering from cancer and died soon afterwards at the age of 85.
HE was the shepherd of one of the oldest Baptist churches in The Bahamas and longest continuing Baptist church in the Caribbean. He presided over an entire convention of churches across the United States and the region. He was a nation builder and community leader. He was a husband, father, uncle and friend.
