I do not know whether it is right, and i am surely not the right
person to mourn in public, but i wanted to forward this.

I only spoke to him once, he mailed me in private, but i could not
help him supporting Uganda, even though i admired what he was
doing, and often looked.

Local capacity building, and (mutual) respect for local culture
and practice, despite all sharp spikes and edges the storm causes
over time, that is surely the way to do it right.

Should you wish to attend his funeral then please send a message to This email address can also be used to get in contact with the family regarding other matters, bearing in the mind the situation we are in right now as family.

With kind regards,
The family of Bram Moolenaar
