It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ken Wanyoto, who had been our Human Resources Director of African Parks since June 2019. Ken was on work related travel to Pendjari and W National Parks in Benin when he suddenly fell ill in Cotonou and was taken to the hospital where he tragically passed away the same day on May 28th, 2021. Ken was an extremely valued and respected individual, who was deeply committed to African Parks, our mission, and to every single staff member within our organisation. He was kind beyond measure, and we shall miss him terribly. Our most sincere and heartfelt condolences are with his wife, and his two children, and to everyone who is mourning his loss.
