Sad to learn of the untimely demise of our brother Makane Faye. I worked with him many years on the WGIG and IGF. He was such a gentleman. RIP.

Makane était chef du Centre de documentation et d'information de l'Organisation régionale africaine de normalisation à Nairobi, au Kenya avant de rejoindre l'ONU. Il a dirigé le lancement du Forum africain sur la gouvernance de l'Internet, dont il était le secrétaire. Il était également président du comité de planification du WAIGF et membre du comité exécutif de l'Internet Governance Support Association (IGFSA).

>> Il était aussi président de l'Association des anciens membres du personnel des Nations Unies résidant au Sénégal et est, à ses heures perdues, consultant en TIC pour le développement et la gouvernance de l'Internet. Makane était titulaire d'un doctorat en technologie de l'information, d'une maîtrise en gestion de l'information et d'un baccalauréat en sciences de la documentation. Tu vas nous manquer énormément Makane. Repose en paix très cher ami et frère. Nous poursuivons ton œuvre.
