It is with sadness that we announce the passing of

Rev. Dickson Diwanga Moyambo

General Secretary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Botswana (ELCB).

God called our dear brother home on Friday, 12th February 2021 at the age of 56.

Dickson Diwanga Moyambo was born on 12th May 1964 in Kajaja 1, Botswana.

He pursued his Diploma in Theology at Tumaini University in Tanzania in 2004, was ordained as a Pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Botswana on 4th June 2006 and served as Pastor in the Maun Congregation in the Nothern Circuit of Botswana.

Besides this, he worked for the Botswana Council of Churches in 2008 on Community intervention, targeting Men for the HIV prevention project, as a Maun Project Site Facilitator.

Reverend Moyambo became the Northern Circuit Dean in 2010. After this, he also became the woodpecker horticulture project manager.

On March 2011, Reverend Moyambo was elected as General Secretary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church Botswana. As a General Secretary, he was responsible for church administration, property and assets.

With Dickson Diwanga Moyambo, we are losing a very committed brother, well-known to many UEM colleagues, who leaves a deep gap in our midst.

Rev. Dickson Diwanga Moyambo leaves behind his wife, his children and grand-children as well as his parents and siblings.

We are thankful that we had the honour to know him and to work with him in GOD’s Mission. We are especially grateful for his support whilst travelling through Botswana in February 2019. Together with his family and with his Church we mourn for him deeply.

“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his Saints” (Psalms 116: 15)
