Condolences on the passing of Mr. Thami Mvumbi on Friday 09 July 2021


It is with great sadness that we share the news of the sudden passing on Friday July 9, 2021 of Thami Mvumbi, Chairperson of the BCCEI. Thami served as our Chairperson from March 2017 to March 2019, then as our Deputy Chairperson from March 2019 to March 2021 and he was re-elected as Chairperson in March this year for a term that would have run until March 2023. Thami’s re-election as Chairperson clearly showed the level of confidence and trust that the BCCEI stakeholders had in his leadership abilities. With his sudden passing, the civil engineering industry has suffered a tremendous loss and Thami will be sorely missed.

The BCCEI management team and staff express our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues during this sad time as we bid Thami farewell.
