Following the news of the passing of former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, Greenpeace Africa Executive Director Njeri Kabeberi has said:
A great pillar of peace, justice, human rights and equality has fallen. We share in the grief of all those who mourn him.
As UN Secretary General Kofi Annan made the need to act for our climate a priority. We call on leaders everywhere to walk in the path he set and continue making climate action a key prerogative. The planet faces more threats today than ever before and we must continue to keep the flame Kofi lit for climate justice burning in his honour.
Rest well illustrious son of Africa.
