We recently learned, with great sadness, that Prof Habatwa Mweene passed away. He succumbed to COVID-19 on 21 June 2021. This is a tremendous loss for the community and he will be remembered for his contributions to the development of the fields of Physics and Astronomy in Zambia and the continent. He also contributed to the Development in Africa with Radio Astronomy (DARA) and the Zambian SKA-AVN projects. AfAS offers heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, colleagues, and students.
