In Memoriam: Derek Liebenberg (RSA), 1960-2014
Affectionately known as Zulu, he was appointed as the FEI’s Regional Development Officer for Africa in 1998 and worked tirelessly to develop Endurance throughout Southern Africa from his home in Johannesburg.
Derek made a huge, life-long commitment to Endurance and its community, and we will be forever grateful for this,” said Ian Williams, FEI Director for Endurance.
“Zulu also played top-level rugby in South Africa before coming to equestrian sport. He will be sorely missed by those who witnessed his commitment to all types of sport.”
The FEI expresses its sincere condolences to Derek Liebenberg’s wife Caroline and his two daughters, Jannecke and Erin, to the South African Equestrian Federation and to the global Endurance community.
The service to remember Derek Liebenberg is on Monday, 13 October at 14.00 at Christ Church, 34 Gordon Road, Blairgowrie, Johannesburg.
