It is with the deepest regret that the Zimbabwe Intellectual Property Development Trust (ZIPDT) announces the sudden death of its Board Chairman Mr Gift Huggins Sibanda on 1 October 2019. A committed and diligent driver of IP development in Africa, Mr Sibanda had been Board Chairman of the Trust since its establishment in 2014 and brought a wealth of the most senior intellectual property experience and wisdom to the role.
The Board would like to appreciate the late Mr. Sibanda for his invaluable contribution to the success of the Trust during his tenure of services and expresses the deepest condolences to the Sibanda family.
He will be dearly missed not just by us as the Trust but by the African IP fraternity and by all who knew him.
MAY HIS SOUL REST IN ETERNAL PEACE.
