Prior to his passing, Prof. Thomas Kigabo was a seasoned visiting lecturer of Econometrics at the AIMS-Cameroon center of excellence, inspiring through his lectures and personality the next generation of African scientists.

His passing is indeed a great loss, not just for AIMS-Cameroon or the AIMS network, but for all economic policy developers across the continent. His valued experience and knowledge coupled with his selflessness will without doubt be missed.

To a distinguished academic, a professor at the college of Business and Economics at the University of Rwanda, a Chief Economist at the Central Bank of Rwanda, and a member of the AIMS-Cameroon Academic Advisory Council, we say farewell with heavy hearts.
