I have had the honour to meet and interact with Professor Ndulu during my posting as EU Ambassador to Tanzania, when he was Governor of the Bank of Tanzania.
I have always been impressed by Benno’s outstanding capacity to analyse complex matters and explain them in simple words, always adapting to his varied audience: students, journalists, politicians, international partners, technpcrats, etc. An exemplary civil servant, highly respected, humble and always open to exchange, ha has achieved so many things in his career that he will be rembered and missed by many in his country, and internationally. He was also a very friendly and pleasant person. With him a generation of competent, wise, and generous builders of modern Tanzania is sadly being washed away by the Covid tragedy.
May his soul rest in peace, my deepest condolnce to his family.
