We at Rural Outreach Africa and African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition and Development, and myself personally send our heartfelt condolences to the family of late President of Tanzania Benjamin Mkapa, and to the people of Tanzania. I feel it as my late dad was Benjamin, and secondly, I had been invited to join a panel for African Leadership Forum he had convened for next week. His Excellency Mkapa was a good person, who taught us that one can be an intellectual but also a good leader. He died working. His humility will take him to a good place. REST IN ETERNAL PEACE.
