Even by the standards of central Africa, Marcel Rudasingwa lived through turbulent times... During the genocide of 1994, when France looked the other way, Belgium withdrew her forces, and Bill Clinton, keeping his distance from the carnage, inquired about the fate of an attractive Tutsi whom he had met at a reception, Rwanda bled, more than she had ever bled before... Marcel survived the genocide... With a resilience almost super-human, Marcel and Monique rebuilt their lives, Marcel resuming his work with UNICEF in successive duty postings in Africa and Europe... There was a funding shortfall for the measles campaign... He was all business, pulling out the stops to find the funding needed for a successful campaign... Dear Marcel, Congratulations or condolences, depending on what you find when you get to Conakry... I can think of no better choice than you... You are the right man in the right place at the right time... Godspeed, and a safe return! Cheers, Bob Read in retrospect, those farewell wishes take on a kind of tragic poignancy... How could such a fine man, a fine rep, a fine husband and father have been cut down in his prime? Let me give the last word to the book of Ecclesiastes. “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. ” May he rest in peace.
