Hamba kahle, Mkhonto! I was introduced to your work by my former teacher, Prof Jimi Adesina, who would tell us that you are "the smartest man in Africa!" Thank you the gifts of your intellect and for have been the teacher of our teachers. Although some of us would never meet you in person, through your thinking, the respect and love with which our elders hold you, give us a piece of the person that you were. Rest in power, Mwalimu.

Thandika has left behind indelible foot-marks. Many of us have immeasurably benefited from his enormous scholarly work and his distinguished service to mother continent. We'll greatly miss his sharp intellect, kind demeanor, dedicated service, and unique humaneness . Wishing him peace on the other side.

C'est avec une immense tristesse que j ai appris le décès de Thandika. la communauté scientifique a perdu un Grand intellectuel qui a beaucoup œuvré pour la science. Nous avons cheminé avec lui pendant longtemps au CODESRIA ou il s est beaucoup donné. Nous avons beaucoup appris de lui, de son humanisme et de sa joie de vivre.Il était a l écoute du personnel local qu il défendait.On ne l oubliera jamais.Que Dieu le tout puissant l acceuille dans son paradis
Adieu Thandika le sénégalais.

While I never got to meet the Professor, I was greatly inspired by his writing including his work on financial reform in SSA.

I quoted the line below by him in my Phd and to date I continue to try to ensure that I work towards changing this irony.

“A major irony of African development history is that the theories and models employed have largely come from outside the continent. No other region of the world has been so dominated by external ideas and models.” Mkandawire and Soludo (1999)
