In memory of Steve Fitzgerald (1953 – 2017)

It is with deep sorrow that the Angama Mara family shares the unexpected news that Steve Fitzgerald passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, 21 October 2017.

Steve underwent a successful heart transplant on 24 September 2017 and was well on his way to a full recovery when he succumbed to unforeseen complications totally unrelated to his heart whilst still in ICU at Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg. For four weeks Steve’s beautiful new heart beat strongly and we were hopeful for a full recovery. The doctors and nursing staff at the hospital did all they could to save his life.

As a family, we will miss him most terribly. Angama Mara stands as a legacy of his vision to invest in Kenya at a time when few others had the courage to do so.

Nicky, Kate and the Angama Mara family extend their heartfelt thanks to all those who have supported us thus far and we look forward to working hard to making Steve’s dream a success.
