Sixty-Seventh WHO Regional Committee for Africa

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Good morning. Thank you, Master of Ceremonies; your Excellency, President Robert Mugabe; honourable Minister of Health of Zimbabwe, Dr David Pagwesese Parirenyatwa; the outgoing chairman of the sixty-sixth session of the RC, Dr Nascimento do Rosario; Your Excellency, Mrs Amira Elfadil, the African Union Commission of Social Affairs, honourable ministers, distinguished colleagues, ladies and gentlemen,

It makes me very proud to stand before you as the first African Director-General of WHO. I thank you for your encouragement and support throughout my campaign. When my nomination was endorsed at the African Union, His Excellency President Mugabe was chairing the summit, and it is fitting that the Regional Committee is here in Zimbabwe. So thank you so much, Your Excellency. I would also like to thank my brother, the foreign minister of Zimbabwe, Minister Simbarashe, for his support under the guidance of President Mugabe.
