The sun has set on the trailblazing legacy of a gallant son of Africa, the star that shone brightly from Chato, the late H.E. Dr. (h.c.) John Pombe Joseph Magufuli. On behalf of the Makerere University Council, Senate, Management, staff, students, Alumni and the entire community please accept our sincerest condolences upon this deeply saddening news.

Our utmost commiserations go to the First Lady, Mwalimu Janeth Magufuli, the family, the Government, brothers and sisters and gallant alumni from the United Republic of Tanzania upon the loss of Father, President and visionary leader.

We stand with our brothers, sisters and colleagues in the University of Dar es Salaam and the University of Dodoma upon the loss of patriotic and practical alumnus and Honorary Doctorate recipient.

We extend sincere condolences to the family of the late H.E. Dr. (h.c.) John Pombe Joseph Magufuli upon the loss of a loving husband, father, grandfather and mentor. We equally commiserate with the leadership and people of the United Republic of Tanzania as well as our gallant alumni upon the loss of a leader who had his nation at heart.

We thank God for his life and may his soul rest in eternal peace.
