The Colleges of Medicine of South Africa (CMSA) learned with great shock and sadness of the passing away of Prof Gboyega Ogunbanjo,. who was the
2nd Vice President of our CMSA, on Saturday 17 August 2019.

Prof O, as he was affectionately known to us and most, was well-respected and a giant of our medical fraternity, whose span of work reached far and beyond the shores of our continent. He was known for his passion for serving the most vulnerable of our society through his chosen specialty of Family Medicine.

Prof O has been one of the pillars of strength of the CMSA having served our organization for several years in various capacities, with great tenacity and dedication. He also brought a lot of fun into the CMSA with his traditional bet collection for the correct guess-time for the guest speech at our admission ceremonies.

His towering legacy will not only be in his academic excellence and the tireless work he did for our country, continent, and the globe, but it will be in each heart that he touched with his kindness and generosity. He will be sadly missed by the whole CMSA family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Ogunbanjo family and friends. We mourn with you as we bid farewell to a great son of the soil.

Dr. Flavia Senkubuge
