We are deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved friend and a colleague, Mr. Phuntsho Loday, Senior Laboratory Technician I on 17th September 2022. He had a Bachelor’s degree in Tropical Agriculture from the International Agriculture Centre, Netherlands. He joined the civil service on 1st July 1991 as an Agriculture Supervisor in the Department of Agriculture. He was the finest and the most competent technical officer in Entomology. His untimely demise will be greatly missed by the Centre, Department and farmers. We offer our sincere thoughts and prayers for his quick rebirth.
