The press microcosm is mourning one of his own again. The newspaper La Gazette de la Grande Île's journalist caricaturist, Aimé Razafy, has passed away.

Death of caricaturist Aimé Razafy

He wrote his first lines in a government owned daily newspaper named Atrika by the end of the 1970s, then had a long and probing carreer at Madagascar Tribune, and finally joined, in 2003, La Gazette de la Grande Île’s staff. Aime Razafy passed away aged 50 years old, on December 19th in Antananarivo, following some time spent at the hospital. He has been buried in Ambohipo, one of the capital city’s suburban district, on December 21st. 


Made famous by his category” Sans Cible” at Tribune, then by “Sans Sommation” at The Gazette, Aime Razafy was one of Madagascar’s best known caricaturists. He has, besides, taken part into various international exhibitions. 


On Monday December 21st, the local press’ big family gathered anew to express its farewell, merely ten days after the emotional funerals offered to Jocelyne Randrianary, from Midi Madagasikara’s staff. 


His close circle’s friends remember Aime Razafy as “a confirmed bachelor”, “a genius “, or as a “mysterious mindset”. And many more will remember “his bold and truthful caricatures”.
