Sam Moyo by Enna Sukutai Gudhlanga (Zimbabwe)

Number of visits: 1039

Am deeply saddened by Prof Sam Moyo’s passing on in India where he was attending a conference on the Labour Question in the Global South. The academic fraternity has really been robbed of a giant who was eager to mentor both seasoned and upcoming scholars. We have been deprived of an erudite scholar and a fine gentleman. I will never forget the assistance he gave to our CODESRIA CRN Team, the project culminated in a book which was published in 2015 by CODESRIA titled: Gender, Politics and Land Use in Zimbabwe, 1980-2012. The Land and Agrarian Studies question will never be the same without Prof Sam Moyo. We have been privileged to know and learn from the prolific Professor par excellence of our time. Fare thee well Prof Sam Moyo, may your soul rest in eternal peace. May your family, the AIAS FAMILY, the CODESRIA family and the whole academic fraternity be comforted.
