Untimely death of Professor Edwell Kaseke

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Lusaka office and Southern African Social Protection Experts Network (SASPEN) Trustees, Board of Directors and Secretariat are deeply saddened over the death of Professor Edwell Kaseke.

Professor Edwell Kaseke was the Chair of Social Work in the School of Human and Community Development at University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, as well as a member of the SASPEN Advisory Council, until his death on 24th August 2017.

SASPEN and the broader social protection community have lost an intellectual giant with an immeasurable passion for the continent and the improvement of the well-being of its people. Furthermore, SASPEN has lost a trusted colleague, a sincere and gentle friend, teacher, mentor and a wise humble giant, a person in whose life we could see God’s love and compassion.

To the surviving spouse and the children, we pray for God’s blessings and peace to be with family in a very special way in this difficult time. We thank you most sincerely for sharing Edwell with Us. The burial arrangement for the late Professor Edwell Kaseke will take place in his home country Zimbabwe.

SASPEN will miss him dearly.
