Mahe, Seychelles April 20th, 2015. The Board and Management of Century Capital Holding Ltd ("Century") on Friday announced the death of its Co-founder & Partner for SADC, Hilma Hitula.  She was to turn 43 couple days before she passed.

 

Hitula, who had been most instrumental in the expansion of Century's investments in the SADC region and had recently taken over the reins at the supervisory body of the Namibia Telecom regulator CRAN in June last year, passed away on Friday morning after succumbing to a long fight with cancer.

 

“Hilma was one extraordinary entrepreneur. She was maybe the most enthusiastic and hard working business leader I was given the chance to work with. She was full of joy and smarts. A potent mind not only able to keep engaged any crowd but also could sustain any challenge. She down played her cancer struggle in front of us and was working hard until the last week. It was an immense privilege to work closely with someone with such courage, such strong mental, and firm convictions ” Ibrahim Sagna, another Co-founder of Century said.

 

He added “I wish on behalf of the entire Century family to extend my sincere condolences to her family, friends, colleagues and to Namibia as she was quite a recognized leader in her home country.”

 

A serial entrepreneur,  admitted legal practitioner, Hitula drove legal efforts for the local pension fund.  She also chaired the CRAN board’s legal and technical committee. She previously served as legal, regulatory and enforcement advisor to the Directorate of Civil Aviation (DCA) in the Ministry of Works and Transport.

 

She leaves a big void at not only Century, as well as other key organisations but most importantly within her immediate family.
