Our sin­cere con­do­lence to Zam­bians across the world, as Pres­i­dent Michael Chilu­fya Sata took his last breath at the King Edward VII Hos­pi­tal in Lon­don, where he had been receiv­ing treat­ment until Octo­ber 28, 2014. Pres­i­dent Sata’s pass­ing turns a new chap­ter in African his­tory as Mr. Guy Scott takes the offi­cial role as the Zam­bian (interim) Head of State by default. Zam­bia is one of the few African coun­tries that have been multi-​racially inclu­sive of per­sons of Euro­pean descent it is high­est Office.

Pro­fes­sor Ali Al’Amin Mazrui passed away Sun­day at 8.32pm New York time (Mon­day, 12.32am GMT).

Pro­fes­sor Ali Al’Amin Mazrui will be remem­bered for many things, but noth­ing will supercede what he gave Africans, the vision of the need for stew­ard­ship to the African land­scape and envi­ron­ment. He was a hum­ble, pious, and extremely gen­er­ous fel­low of humanity.
