Rachel Kachaje Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away
Rachel Kachaje Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Rachel Kachaje.
It is with great sadness that we have heard that Rachel Kachaje, Founder and Executive Director of Disabled Women in Africa – DIWA
passed away. Rachel was a leader, a pioneer in the fight for the rights of women with disabilities. Before many, she knew women with disabilities had to organize themselves to be represented, in a world of patriarchy and ableism. She created DIWA and was a key person within the African Disability Forum -ADF. A strong voice. An inspiration for feminists of all kind. Rest in peace, dear sister.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
