Former President of Kenya, Mwai Kibaki has been installed as UNESCO’s special envoy for water in Africa after he received his appointment certificate at a function in Nairobi.
During the event, Mr Mwai Kibaki lauded his new role as timely because “current statistics on water in Africa point to a very gloomy picture indeed.” The appointment means Mr Kibaki will campaign for safe drinking water on the continent, as part of the efforts by UNESCO to have water accessible to all.
Mwai takes the appointment as an opportunity to support all Africans after representing Kenyans. He said “I am sure we will succeed. And I am sure the world will join us. Let us, therefore, put all our hearts in the job and do it properly.”
