Previous article | Next

MONUC - April 20, 2007 5:40 PM

Asha-Rose Migiro UN Deputy Secretary General Dr. Asha-Rose Migiro will arrive in the DRC on 22 April 2007, for a three day visit to the country, where she will meet with President Kabila and Prime Minister Gizenga, as well as other political personalities.

Dr. Migiro will be making her first visit to a UN mission since her appointment by Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on 5 January 2007.

As well as meeting with president Kabila and Prime Minister Gizenga, Dr. Migiro will meet with the President of the National Vital Kamerhe, as well as Fr. Apollinaire Malu Malu, President of the Independent Electoral Commission.

She will also meet with MONUC personalities and staff on her visit here.

The Deputy Secretary General, who is from Tanzania, was a member of the Tanzanian government and has much political experience. From 2006 to 2007 she was Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and held another post as Community Development, Gender and Children’s Affairs minister.

As Foreign Minister, Dr. Migiro spearheaded Tanzania’s engagement in the pursuit of peace security and development in the Great Lakes region. She served as chair of the council of ministers’ meetings of the International conference of the Great Lakes Region, a process that culminated in the Great Lakes pact on Security Stability and Development.

Dr. Migiro’s visit follows the earlier DRC visit in January this year of UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, and aims to reinforce the United Nations engagement to the strengthening of the DRC democratic process, as well as assisting the DRC government in its mammoth task- the reconstruction and development of the country.
