Sadly I must advise you that
away yesterday afternoon after a long and bravely fought battle with cancer.
Swanie joined the Department in 1982 and was posted to Mana Pools as the resident ecologist and, it was there, with his gregarious personality, he endeared himself to all, always willing to help and lend a hand; he relished challenges and disregarded hardships often teaming up with his buddies on rhino anti-poaching work when patrols or reaction teams were short staffed, nothing was too much for him… he was a friend to everyone and everyone’s friend. We will miss you Swanie - rest in piece.
Sue needs our support and let’s give Swanie a good send off.
With Kind Regards
