However, he is quite optimistic for winning the title. He has been campaigning hard and working day and night for leading this top honored post. He never missed an opportunity to attend any meeting to show his global approach of thinking.
No African has ever held this post before, which is why, Dr. Mzembi is more keen on winning the coveted title. Dr. Mzembi is truly a global citizen. Although he faces stiff competition, Dr. Mzembi is a dominant contender. He has revealed a plan that could provide Europe with tourists from Africa instead of migrants.
He said that while terrorism and insecurity remain the major challenges in the tourism industry, he could use his experience in the industry to stop Africans migrating to Europe for jobs and instead use the tourism industry to provide them with similar jobs they get in Europe that would turn them into tourists instead of migrants. Dr Mzembi said if he won the UNWTO Secretary General post, he would use the power of the post to organize governments around the world to protect the industry against the curse of terrorism.
