message for Professor John Makumbe
Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR)
January 28, 2013
The Board, staff
and membership of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) are deeply
saddened to learn about the unfortunate and sudden death of Professor
John Makumbe who passed away on Sunday 27 January 2013.
was a highly respected member of Zimbabwe's academic community and
the broader civil society and his counsel and guidance contributed
immensely to the democratisation cause.
ZLHR will always
treasure Prof Makumbe's contribution to fighting injustice, standing
up to dictatorship, and above all moulding all manner of young Zimbabweans
to stand up for their beliefs and principles and exhibit courage
and morality in their pursuit for a better Zimbabwe. He did so with,
humour, empathy and non-violence - qualities which exhibit the true
nature of his leadership and serve as an example to all.
We extend our
most sincere condolences to the Makumbe family, friends and colleagues
as we grieve together with them during this difficult time.
May God grant
John eternal rest and may his memory and deeds live on and be remembered
