C'est une page historique qui se tourne avec la disparition de Thandika. je garde en mémoire le souvenir d'un homme chaleureux, un passeur, un médiateur, un personnage riche de connaissances qu'il voulait partager. C'était aussi un homme plein d'humour et d'ouverture d'esprit.
Que la terre lui soit légère

What an amazing man and memory. I met him in Cape Town, He was a keynote speaker at the TRALAC ANNUAL CONFERENCE. Very humble, very knowledgeable in African political economy, and to the point. He was always an African, very connected to the continent. As an Africanist and a lawyer, a daughter of Tanzania, South Africa, Swaziland, Kenya and many other African countries, I have always looked up to people like Thandika Mkandawire, Issa Shivji (who incidentally guest taught constitutional law at Tumaini Makumira when I taught there), Adebayo Olukushi (a constant key note speaker at the Africa Institute in South Africa where I worked for years) and many more contemporary Africanists, Mazrui, Mamdani, Adesina, Adebajo, adesanmi. There are many more, but I most respect the ones who stay close to Africa in mind and deeds.

From the spaces I find myself in, we need more Africans to speak for Africa. Our agency, our narratives our very future needed people like you to prepare people like me.

Rest in Peace, ulale salama, Hamba Kahle Mwalimu na Shujaa!!
