In Memory Of Dr. Harry Fumba Moniba
Former Vice President Of
November 24, 2007
In life, Dr. Moniba wanted
to provide a leadership that is selfless, inclusive, and exemplary. He cared
above self. He was unwavering in his commitment to peace and respect for rule

In his home going, he did not only leave behind a lasting memory of a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother, he also left a legacy of national leadership with honesty and integrity which is to be admired and emulated.

As we quietly remember him
today as a family man and statesman, I want to ask that you join us in keeping
his leadership vision alive in the years ahead by working to make our great
