message for Professor Makumbe
The Board of
Trustees, Executive Board and staff of Transparency International
Zimbabwe (TI-Z), the leading organization in the fight against corruption
is deeply saddened by the death of Professor John Makumbe who passed-on
on 27 January 2013. It is with deep sorrow and grief that TI-Z learnt
of the sudden departure of Professor Makumbe, one of Zimbabwe's
undisputed human rights and anti-corruption heroes. Professor Makumbe
as one of the founding members of Transparency International Zimbabwe
(TI-Z) will be prominently remembered for his sterling role in the
fight against corruption, his promotion of democratic values and
his human rights activism.
The story of
the excruciating journey towards a corruption free Zimbabwe cannot
be told without mentioning the name of Professor Makumbe and his
instrumentality in placing the corruption issue on the national
agenda. Our heartfelt condolences go the Makumbe family and the
entire nation on the loss of a stalwart advocate for justice and
TI-Z will always
remember the only 'white man from Buhera' and continue
to be inspired by his legacy of integrity and accountability in
the quest for a corruption-free Zimbabwe!
May the Lord
grant him eternal peace.
