FOSDA Mourns the death of Prof Thomas Jaye
He was an indefatigable Pan Africanist. He saw the struggle in any corner of Africa as his battle and he stood this course till the end. Born in Liberia, He lived in Ethiopia, Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and Ghana. In all these places he carried the Pan African banner with him. He was a founding member of FOSDA, a responsibility he proudly held till the end. He will be gravely missed
