Thanks for all the comments, suggestions and clarification on this thread.
Now is the time to act. Nominations at the SG level have started and at the NCUC level next month i believe.
I am happy to nominate anyone here who approaches me and who is seeking my undorsement. Let’s act!
So far, no one from Africa (apart from Rafik) has been nominated. Let’s get out of here and serve!!! Please!!!

>>> Thanks Thato for raising the need for more involvement of Africans in NCSG and NCUC. The same point was raised by Arsene weeks ago and Rafik clearly suggested a strategy that could help us achieved a more desirable outcome. In addition with Rafik suggestion, I would also like to suggest that we need to put on the hat of nominate ourselves for strategically positioning. While we are actively participating, Rafik, Poncelet, Farell, Anriette, Arsene among others should use their influence to nominate African colleagues . This would clearly shows that there is potential African candidates on the list.
