    Dear Josephat’s Family, Friends and Colleagues,
    I’m deeply sorry for your loss and saddened to hear about this tragic accident.
    I’m Marianne from France, this evening I came across randomly and watched a documentary from the Franco-German channel Arte, called “Tanzania : The stolen childhood of Albinos”. It’s how I heard about Josephat, his amazing work, cause, actions and bravery. I’ve been impressed by his personality, kindness and empathy and the Albinos, his country and the world lost a grand man.
    May his soul rest in peace, and his legacy continued.

    Dear Josephat. You have dedicated your life on fighting for the lives of others. It has been a privilege to walk with you on the slopes of mt Kilimanjaro on our journey to break the silence for people with albinism. We learned small steps can make a real difference. And although we will not walk together anymore, your courage, words and actions will inspire many others to continue the journey. Thank you! Rest in peace my friend.? Michael & Irene

    Josephat umekufa tena angali bado siku na Massa machache kufikia birthday yako Leo
    Naiambia dunia kupitia hapa nilikufahamu rasmi na kuijua thamani yako katika ulimwengu huu ambao wote tunapita
    Tulianza kuwa karibu na kuanza kujua kuwa wewe ni Mwanajeshi tulipo kutana Mbugani hotel I!
    Ulinielezea jinsi ulivyopitia changamoto hasa katika kupata elimu yako na mazingira hatari uliyo ishi
    Ukaamua kujitoa kutetea walio na tatizo la ngozi yani watu walio na ualibino

    Dear family and friends,
    The death of Josephat has been a great shock to me. josephat was an example and a source of inspiration for many. Not only people with Albinism, but also people without this condition could take an example from his perseverance and despite everything. a relaxed view of the world. Our trip to the Uhuru peak was an indescribably beautiful experience. I will never forget him. I wish you all a lot of strengt in these extremely difficult times.

    To all who were connected to mr. Turner, in heart, spirit and strive. Although I have never met mr Turner, beautiful words, smiles and twinkles in the eyes of his friends told me that he was an extraordinary man who must and will be remembered. I wish you the very best in dealing with your loss. And later on, in continuing the good work mr Turner did.

    I was shocked and saddened by the death of my friend Josephat. He was an advocate and activist to many. That is how we became Facebook friends. His works inspired me to write a book to spread awareness of his fight. I will miss his many posts and I’m more sorry I never got to meet this great individual face to face. He was a brave and dedicated soldier and warrior. He will be missed by so many, but I urge the PWA community to continue his fight because he opened doors to so much, so much that much of the world was blind to. Godspeed my friend!!
