“We lost a dear friend and colleague” – Message from Michael Hailu, CTA Director

I am deeply shaken and saddened to hear about the untimely death of our dear friend and colleague, Koda. The entire CTA community feels profound pain from the loss of such a wonderful person and caring colleague. When I last saw Koda on 21st December, he was looking forward to the birth of his child and a relaxing holiday season. He looked very happy and in good form. He was enthusiastic about the future and talked about some of the things he was planning to do. It is hard to imagine that he is no more with us.

This is a very difficult time for all of us but most importantly for Koda’s wife and children. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. We will soon organize a memorial service to mourn our loss and celebrate Koda’s life.

We thank the numerous friends and partners of CTA who have sent us messages of condolences.
