Dear Members,

Please find below the sad news from ICANN VP Pierre on the exit of Paul. Paul and his colleague Yazid who are both within OCTO department of ICANN were usually present during our monthly call to provide technical updates. During one of our AFRALO webinar series last year he also featured as one of the speakers.

I could remember a meeting the leadership held with the tech team in 2020 where Paul was very anxious to support AFRALO and was readily available whenever we requested their support as ICANN staff. AFRALO and Africa as a whole has lost a great resource.

It's quite sad to have lost such a young and bright mind and on behalf of the AFRALO leadership I do express condolences to his family, the AFRALO-AfrICANN community and to the entire ICANN community.

We will take a few minutes during the upcoming AFRALO-AfrICANN session to remember our 2 recent fallen heroes.

Dear community members,
I am deeply saddened to inform you of the passing of our friend and colleague, Paul Muchene, who unexpectedly passed away over the weekend on Saturday 6th August 2022. Until his demise, Paul was part of our OCTO Technical Engagement team which he joined in February 2020 and based out of Nairobi Kenya. Paul was an active part of the ICANN community even before becoming staff.
We shall fondly remember him for his friendship, enthusiasm, energy, dedication, and his many professional contributions to ICANN in the Africa and Middle East region. We were very privileged to have him as a colleague for the past two and a half years. Please keep Paul’s family, as well as the staff members who were close to him, in your thoughts during this difficult time. And may his Saul rest in Perfect Peace.
