Obituary Announcement - Dr Peter da Costa, ALC Board of Trustees Deputy Chair


Dr. Peter da Costa

Monday 19 August 2019
Nairobi, Kenya

It is with deep sadness that the African Leadership Centre announces the passing of the Deputy Chair of its Board of Trustees, Dr Peter da Costa, on the evening of Sunday, 18 August 2019.

The ALC has lost a most valued member - a Champion, a deep reflective thinker and a Mentor! His  friendship is infectious, his loyalty legendary and his commitment to the advancement of the African continent and nurturing the next generation of African leaders, unflinching.

Ciru and his two daughters Yassin and Jarra, have also lost a wonderful spouse and an irreplaceable father. Our hearts go out to you; you are in our thoughts and prayers.

We are deeply saddened.

Shuvai Busuman Nyoni

This is an Obituary announcement. The ALC will publish a fuller tribute to Peter in the days to come.
