In Memory of Khalid Hassan

It is with deep sadness that we share that  Khalid Hassan, a long-standing and trusted Board Member of Majete since 2003 passed away on Tuesday, June 15th. Born in Malawi in 1936 and educated at St. John’s School, Harare Zimbabwe, Khalid was a true entrepreneur who established the Construction Company ‘Khalid Construction Limited’ and Tobacco Estates in Dedza and Dzalanyama in Malawi. He had a long history with, and a deep passion for, the natural world and for protecting wildlife and Malawi’s wild places. He served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Malawi Environmental Endowment Trust, and he helped steward African Parks within Malawi since our inception with Majete in 2003. On behalf of everyone at African Parks, we send our deepest condolences to his family and his friends, and honour the long-lasting legacy he left for wildlife and conservation in Malawi.
