UNWTO Secretary-General electionToday’s cabinet shuffle in South Africa might also shuffle cards for the upcoming UNWTO Secretary-General Election procedure. South Africa occupies an important position in the UNWTO Executive Council and one of the key influencers of the African continent. This counts a lot for the travel, tourism, hospitality and aviation industry.

The UNWTO Secretary General election is decided by the members of the UNWTO Executive Council. From Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Mozambique, Seychelles, South Africa, Tunisia, and Zambia are the members of the UNWTO Executive Council. For the impending UNWTO Secretary-General position to be held this year, two very capable and much-liked candidates from the African continent are contending for the highest post: the first one is Alain St.Ange, the former Minister of Tourism from the Seychelles, and the second is Walter Mzembi, the current Minister of Tourism and Hospitality from Zimbabwe.

The Hon. Walter Mzembi from Zimbabwe was endorsed by the African Union as Africa’s choice for UNWTO before Alain St.Ange entered the race. Former South African Minister of Tourism Derek Hanekom, a white South African, had a great rapport with the UNWTO candidate Alain St.Ange, a white African from the Indian Ocean island nation, the Republic of the Seychelles.
