Tragedy struck the Africa University community this week when a student returning to campus from Harare was killed in a minibus accident Monday evening. He was a well-liked second-year student, and the sad news spread across the campus quickly.
A two-hour memorial service was conducted in the University Chapel Tuesday afternoon. The chapel was filled to capacity with over a thousand students, faculty and staff attending the somber service. The quiet caring support for one another and for the grieving family was very clear. It was a meaningful service.
