The British government has appointed a Nigerian, NneNne Iwuji-Eme, as its High Commissioner to Mozambique.
According to the Guardian Newspaper (UK), Iwuji-Eme will be Britain’s first black female career diplomat.
Iwuji-Eme, who has spent 16 years in the Britain’s Foreign Office, will take up her role as High Commissioner in July, taking over from Joanna Kuenssberg.
She said it was “an honour and a privilege” to be appointed to the role and that she hoped she would inspire others to pursue their ambitions. “I hope my appointment as the first British black female career diplomat to this position will inspire young talent, regardless of race or background, to pursue their ambitions in the Foreign Office.”
“I look forward to forging even stronger connections between Britain and Mozambique – two close members of the Commonwealth family,” she told the Guardian. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
