It is saddening that Professor George Kahari, who turned 91 only three days ago, is no more.

I am saddened to let you know that Prof George Kahari died this morning at 2 AM.

He was a good friend of mine and an international scholar and author of note.

He came to see me on the 19th of June, I didn’t realize that he was saying goodbye.
He turned 91 2 days ago. Rest In Peace.
