THE ECHCAC MOURNS THE DEATH OF KWAZI EMMANUEL MBATHA
The ECHCAC joins many in mourning the loss of Kwazi Emmanuel Mbatha. Kwazi passed away in the evening of Sunday 1 June 2014. Kwazi served as the spokesperson for the ECHCAC and was instrumental in its formation and strengthening. We are indebted to his work, vision, energy and kindness, all of which he brought to his work with the ECHCAC.
Kwazi joined the Rural Health Advocacy Project in 2013 and became an indispensable leader in the ECHCAC. Prior to his work with RHAP and the ECHCAC, Kwazi worked for the Centre for Economic Governance and AIDS in Africa as a Researcher and Trainer. In that capacity, he worked closely with the Treatment Action Campaign.
We have lost a great activist, leader, colleague and friend. We join his partner and two children in mourning his death.
