I’m very sorry to have to announce the death of Nhlanhla Baron Masuku on Sunday 15th December.
Baron was from Zimbabwe and had been living in Athlone since early 2018.
He was a kind and gentle man that everyone liked. He had recently received his leave-to-remain papers and was working on family unification.
He will be deeply missed by his friends in the asylum-seeking community, New Horizon volunteers and his tutors and classmates in Athlone Institute of Technology.
On behalf of all New Horizon volunteers I’d like to offer our sympathies to his family and friends.
Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly.
