NEC OFFICIAL VISIT TO HOUSE OF OUR FOUNDING FATHER, THE LATE GODFREY PITJE
On 19 January 2019 a delegation of the NEC paid a special visit to the Pitje Family at their homestead in Daveton. The family shared with the NEC many fond memories of Mr Pitje, the founding President of BLA, which was followed by a visit to the gravesite to lay a wreath in his remembrance and a luncheon. It was a reunion with the soul of our founding father, and the NEC expressed heartfelt appreciation to the family for the gesture extended the executive.
The NEC was taken down memory lane on the history of BLA through many photographs shared by the family. The highlight of the visit was when the NEC was allowed by the family to hold its first caucus meeting for the year in Pitje's study room. Pitje's study is where many BLA meetings took place, as we were told by the family
