27 September 2020


Dr Danny Titus passed on at the age of 63.
Friends and family mourned the loss of former Commissioner of the South African Human Rights Commission, Dr Danny Titus. He passed on last Friday.
He had been in a coma for over a month after undergoing an eye operation.
Titus was with the SAHRC for seven years.
Loved ones came together in a virtual service to honour the human rights activist’s legacy.

As SAHRC Commissioner, Titus contributed greatly to fighting for civil and political rights leading numerous hearings such as the killing of Andries Tatane in 2011. He also devoted himself to promoting language and culture.
Titus served an executive director of culture at the Afrikaans Language and Cultural Association until May this year. He was 63 years old at the time of his passing.
