Prekel wrote: “I abhorred it—the attempts to brainwash us.” “No independent thought was tolerated.” When he returned to South Africa, he did not have a matric and joined Iscor to become an artisan. He wrote that he was fortunate enough to obtain a doctorate in physics from the University of Pretoria. He attended Unisa’s school of business leadership after completing his work on South Africa’s metrication. He then went on to lecture at various universities around the world. Prekel contacted the Corona virus in August and got cured of it. He then suffered a fall in late September, during which he received emergency brain surgery. He spent six weeks in the hospital. However, he was at home in the last two weeks, where he was taken care of by his wife, Truida, and two other carers. He is survived by Lu-Marie Sobey, his stepdaughter, who lives in Australia.
