The Management and the entire fraternity of the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) are deeply saddened by the passing away of the Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) Chairman, Prof. Mayunga Hemedi Habibu Nkunya on 20th July, 2021 in Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam.


We would like to express our profound sorrow and heartfelt condolences to Prof. Charles Kihampa, the Executive Secretary of the Tanzania Commission for Universities, the whole TCU community and the deceased’s bereaved family members following this demise. The late Prof. Nkunya had been working very closely and in a friendly manner with our University during his service as the TCU Executive Secretary, Chairman of the Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) Standing Committee for Quality Assurance and in many other academic placements he held. In many incidents SUZA had frequently been seeking his advice. His passing is a loss to everyone especially we the higher education population and we are consoling with you during this difficult time.


We pray that you will find the strength and faith to ease your pain in the face of this great sorrow. Be uplifted by the pleasant memories of Prof. Nkunya and this will comfort you during your time of grief.


May God, the Almighty rest his soul in eternal peace, Amen.


Inna Lillah wa Inna Ilayhi Raajiun.
