COMESA Secretary General Sindiso Ngwenya seeks illegal third term

By Azania Post Reporter, Dar es Salaam

THE epic saga surrounding the 20th COMESA Heads of State and Government Summit which was to be held in the Republic of Burundi early June 2018 continues.

Nearly a month ago, Azania Post published its first article on the hidden agenda behind the 20th COMESA Summit. Back then, we highlighted several facts that led to believe that COMESA has continuously postponed the 20th Summit that was to take place in Burundi since 2017 because COMESA Secretary General, Sindiso Ngwenya is secretly working with Rwanda President, Paul Kagame and other Rwandese nationals within COMESA Secretariat to sabotage chances of neighboring Burundi hosting the Summit.

You will recall that COMESA Secretary General, Sindiso Ngwenya officially announced on May 21, 2018 that the 20th COMESA Summit scheduled to take in Burundi from 1st to 10th June 2018 had been cancelled for unexpected and unknown circumstances and that it will relocated to Lusaka, Zambia sometime in July 2018. A week later, we found out that the Republic of Zambia refused to host the 20th COMESA Summit as announced by SG Sindiso Ngwenya until it received an official request to do so from the COMESA Authority.

After days of flying to COMESA member states trying to sell them the idea of not hosting the 20th COMESA Summit in Burundi, COMESA Secretary General, Sindiso Ngwenya ran out of time before achieving his scheme and is forced to inform all COMESA member states with great regret that he will be stepping down as COMESA Secretary General as his second term comes to an end on June 30, 2018.

We were recently surprised as many official sources informed Azania Post that at the moment there is a huge sense of discontent at COMESA Headquarters in Lusaka, Zambia as COMESA staff members do not understand why COMESA Secretary General, Sindiso Ngwenya is still very busy wasting COMESA funds visiting Heads of state trying to convince them to illegally authorise him to stay as COMESA Secretary General for an additional six months.

Instead of finalising end of term reports as stated two weeks ago, COMESA Secretary General, Sindiso Ngwenya is busy seeking an illegal third term despite that the treaty establishing the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa has no provisions for third terms.

If relocated outside of Burundi, the 20th COMESA Summit is estimated to cost COMESA more than one million American dollars to compensate to the Government of Burundi in expenses and an additional five hundred thousand American dollars to compensate Burundi private contractors. How much money can COMESA Secretary General, Sindiso Ngwenya cost COMESA and tax payers in his remaining twelve days in office?

This is not true as the interviews for the Secretary General are taking place right now in Lusaka and the Secretary General will be appointed by the Summit on 18 th July during the Twentieth Summit of the COMESA Authority which will be held in Lusaka Zambia. As Secretary General of COMESA I have officially written to member States to thank them for their support during my tenure as Secretary General. Your audience may wish to note that I had in 2016 requested that I be allowed to leave early and was requested to continue. I am ready to share the reports with your audience.
It is most unfortunate that your media has resorted to skulldugeery and obscene vilification of my integrity in cahoots with your unnamed sources within the Secretariat. This is the worst that social media can do by destroying the integrity of leaders on the basis of hatred. I am prepared to bare it all .as the Bible says of you speak the truth the truth shall set you free.

COMESA Secretary General serves for a maximum of two 5-year terms as enshrined in the COMESA Treaty. The press release in the following link is helpful.

If this is true it is a shame to Africa. Africa needs commitment to address the many challenges available. I urge all leaders to be committed to Africa welfare.
