Obituary Hon. Ambassador Dr. Augustine P. Mahiga

On Friday, 01 May, 2020, Dr. Augustine Philip Mahiga, Honorable Ambassador and Minister of the United Republic of Tanzania, passed away on the way to the hospital from his house in Dodoma.

We will always remember Dr. Mahiga as an ambassador of fahari yetu to the government of the United Republic of Tanzania, and an ambassador of Iringa Region and its people to the world. Ever since he ceremonially opened Iringa Boma in 2016, he was tirelessly advising and mentoring us in how to advance our work and build our public and international relations. May the Almighty God rest your soul in eternal peace! Our sincere condolences go to his family and all the people who were close to him.
