The Secretariat of the All Africa Students Union (AASU) has learnt with sadness the demise of Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the first African and sixth Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) from January 1992 to December 1996. With this sad occurrence that happened on 16th February, 2016 Africa has lost one its illustrious son.
