Britain appoints “first black female career diplomat” NneNne Iwuji-Eme as High Commissioner
The UK has appointed NneNne Iwuji-Eme as the British High Commissioner to Mozambique, The Guardian reports.
Iwuji-Eme is the “first black female career diplomat” to be appointed a high commissioner by the British foreign office.
Speaking on her appointment, Iwuji-Eme described it as “an honour and a privilege.” She said:
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.
Foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, said diversity is a valuable asset for the UK, and added that Iwuji-Eme has “vision, experience and energy” for the appointment. He said:
As the country heads in a new and exciting direction, it’s important that we have the brightest and the best batting for Britain. Our great diversity is an invaluable asset on the global stage, and it’s only right that at all levels [of] the FCO reflects this.
As a continent with some of the world’s fastest growing economies, Africa is an important partner post-Brexit. NneNne has the vision, experience and energy to take our relationship with Mozambique to the next level, and I congratulate her on her appointment.
NneNne Iwuji-Eme will take up her role as the high commissioner in July.
