Dr. Angeline Kamba, IRRI Board Member from 1998 to 2003, died on September 12, 2017 at the age of 81. A family representative stated that she “has passed peacefully at home after being unwell for over a month”. She is survived by two children and two grandchildren.


Dr. Kamba served as chair of the IRRI Board from 2002 to 2003. Prior to this, she was Zimbabwe’s representative to UNESCO Commission on Culture and Development, and held other positions in different local and international agencies such as Zimbabwe’s National Archives and CAB International.


She is a terrible loss to the development industry, and we express our deepest condolences to her family.
