In a volume of Koers largely dedicated to emeritus Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the following extract from the commendatio deserves special attention:

He never failed to emphasise that forgiveness and reconciliation can never be cheap, but can only be achieved through equal justice for all citizens. This was the reason why he fought with his whole being and all the means at his disposal against the unjust, inhuman and unbiblical ideology of apartheid. He did so long before this university distanced itself from apartheid, first through some lonely voices in the seventies and finally in 1996. The Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education has the greatest respect, appreciation and admiration for the way in which this fellow-Christian consistently, openly, boldly and unashamedly lived out basic Christian principles like justice, truth, reconciliation and peace.
