ENZA Social Research joins with activists across South Africa and the world in paying tribute to Prudence Mabele for her relentless and brave activism for the rights of women, lesbians and the LGBT community, women living with HIV. Prudence was at the forefront of many struggles, and was never afraid to be vocal and visible and vociferous. She was crazy, vital, fun, caring and loving. We send our thoughts and love to her family and friends and fellow activists. We will never be silent and we will continue to carry on the work she was so passionate about.
