Obituary – Monique Butt

We are saddened to learn of the recent passing of Monique Butt, Business Services Director and founder of the publication Africa Telecom & IT.

“I have interacted with her on several occasions over many years at various ICT events and she was always charming. I am simply shocked beyond belief.” said Secretary-General Shola Taylor.

“Publishers play a key role in promoting ICTs, but only a handful have found ways to remain sustainable in the post-dot.com age and with Africa Telecom & IT, Monique was one one them, unique in many ways. She had real interest in technology and its impact in the region.” said Marcel Belingue, CTO’s Senior Manager, Membership & Communications. “She will be dearly missed.” he added.
