Prof Buso, we loved you but God loved you more. May your soul have a peaceful journey back to heaven to meet our ancestors.
On behalf of the School of Public Health at the University of the Western Cape, I would like to express our heartfelt condolences on the passing of Professor David Buso. He was one of the pioneers and stalwarts of the field of public health in South Africa and in the field of higher education generally. We remember him in particular for his role at the helm of the Department of Community Medicine at Walter Sisulu University for many years, where he encouraged and helped shape the next generation of public health enthusiasts and practitioners, as well as his presence in national bodies such as the Public Health Association of South Africa. For those of us who interacted with him over the years, we also remember his warmth, curiosity and openness.
His passing is a great loss to our field and our country.
