Passing away of our Honorary Consul in East London: Mr Alain Viaene. [fr]
It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing away of our Honorary Consul in East London, Mr Alain Viaene, on 20 September 2016. Mr Viaene served as Honorary Consul since 1999.
His dedication and his joie de vivre made him an indispensable part of the French community. He worked hard for the French people in East London in the Eastern Cape and for the promotion of France in the region. We are thankful for his contributions.
The French network in South Africa, notably the Embassy in Pretoria and the Consulate of France in Cape Town, offer their sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of Mr Viaene.
