Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) director Tabani Moyo has been elected vice chairperson in the Governing Council of the Africa Freedom of Information Centre (AFIC) board.
Moyo was elected at the virtual elective annual general meeting on January 27.
“The task at hand, given the complexities facing humanity in the age of pandemics, natural disasters, migration pressures, melting economies and inward-looking administrations globally, requires collaborative efforts and being outward-looking while tackling localised issues,” Moyo said.
“I’m grateful to the membership for bestowing this leadership mantle on us as fellow governing council members for the two-year tenure of office, which, hopefully, will position Africa’s media development agenda and complexities on the global stage,” he added.
AFIC is an African network of about 50 civil society organisations and think tanks across 23 African countries. It is based in Kampala, Uganda.
