President Jacob Zuma has extended his heartfelt condolences to the family of Ms Anitha Soni, the former chairperson of Brand South Africa and a respected businesswoman and entrepreneur who passed on yesterday, 16 May.
Ms Soni has been unwell. Her husband A Vas Soni resigned from his post as head of the Special Investigating Unit in February this year, in order to provide support and to spend more time with her and their children.
“Ms Soni has played a meaningful role in promoting the country locally and abroad as chairperson of Brand SA and also as a tourism entrepreneur. She loved her country and was always ready to perform any task aimed at promoting investments, growth and job creation. She is gone too soon. We extend our deepest condolences to A Soni and the whole family during this difficult and painful time,” said President Zuma.
