Rhoda Kadalie was indeed a very special friend, to us too. Always there when we needed honest advice. One of our biggest supporters, attending many a school prize giving ceremony. We will treasure the memories. https://t.co/N6p4VS6ZwO

Rhoda Kadalie sounds like a remarkable and brave woman.
I’m sad that I never had the chance to meet her or work with her. I would have loved to hear her thoughts about wokeness.
My condolences to her family and friends.https://t.co/1aRqCe6Cbm
