Many of us at MIET Africa were privileged to have worked with Prof Finn Reygan over the past decade, with our relationship strengthening particularly over the last few years. Finn contributed significantly through his active participation in several regional research studies conducted by MIET Africa, was one of the initiators of the recently established CSTL Research programme, and served on the CSTL Investment Portfolio Reference Committee.
Finn’s passion and enthusiasm for ensuring the rights of all people are upheld, especially the most marginalised, was infectious, and he was able to influence attitudes for the good through his courage and willingness to speak out against injustice. An optimist with a positive outlook on life, none of us will forget Finn’s robust, joyful laughter that could be recognised from afar!
An extremely proud and caring father and grandfather, our condolences and comforting thoughts and prayers are sent to his children,
