It is with our deepest sorrow that we, Tanzanians living in Columbus, Ohio inform you of the death of our beloved brother Leo Mapunda, who died today, December 03, 2016 of complications from chemo treatment at Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Beginning of November 2016, our beloved Brother Leo checked-in himself at the hospital for the back pain where he was admitted and diagnosed with cancer. He started chemo treatment last Tuesday, November 29, 2016, and was moved to ICU on Thursday, December 1, 2016 where he has been closely monitored until he succumbed to death.
