Pan-African Parliament (PAP) regrets the death of Hon. Mike TEMPLE!

The Pan-African Parliament (PAP) has lost Honorable Senator Michael John TEMPLE.

Hon. Temple had been a member of PAP since October 2004, a year after he was sworn in as a Senator at the National Assembly of the Kingdom of Eswatini. He was not only a member but a Chairperson of the PAP Permanent Committee on Monetary and Financial Affairs.

The President of the Pan-African Parliament, The Rt. Hon. Roger Nkodo DANG, says the sudden passing of Hon. Mike Temple is a bitter pill to swallow.

“Senator Temple has been extremely instrumental in shaping our Parliament and in the African Union Reform process. The level of finesse he displayed in carrying out his duties and his outstanding ability to speak without fear or favor will be dearly missed,” Hon. Dang says.  

The PAP President has extended his condolences to His Majesty King MSWATI III, the Temple family, the Parliament and People of the Kingdom of Eswatini, the Southern African Caucus, Honorable Members and the Staff of the Pan-African Parliament.

Members and staff of the Pan-African Parliament describe him as both a soft and out-spoken personality with thorough knowledge in the area of finance, as well as a sense of delivery. He will be missed for his love of culture and spirit of pan-Africanism.  

The Pan-African Parliament will open a condolence book for mourners who would like to   register their messages.
