HIFA Harare International
Festival of the Arts

Stephen Joel Chifunyise

6 August 2019

It is with a deep sense of sadness and loss that the Board of Trustees, Management and Team of Hifa, has learnt of the passing of a true friend of HIFA.

Stephen Chifunyise joined the HIFA Board of Trustees in 2001. During his time on the Board, he was a dignified and gracious presence whose belief and support of HIFA's objectives and projects was never in doubt. His vast cultural and artistic experience as well as his overall wisdom contributed hugely to HIFA's growth and the development of the Festival's ideas and aims.

Mr Chifunyise's loss is not only to HIFA but to cultural diplomacy in Zimbabwe and the region. He will be so very sorely missed and the Chairman and Board of Trustees, the HIFA Management and Team offer their most sincere condolences to Mr Chifunyise's family, friends and colleagues. May Stephen's soul rest in peace and may perpetual Light shine upon him.
