“Im grateful to the IFEX membership for bestowing this leadership mantle on fellow councilors and myself until 2020 and commit to perfoming my responsibilities to the best of my abilities,” he said.

“This is an affirmation that MISA is an evolving brand whose impact is recognized by global institutions such as IFEX .This milestone is not about me as an individual and team leader,but also an expression of confidence in the Trustees,Board,Secretariat,members of MISA and indeed the entire stakeholder chain,” said Moyo.
“In 2015, we rebranded as an institution and became driven by the value proposition of being the thought leader,knowledge institution and expertise organisation.I think this bears testimony to our humble efforts in living up to this commitment,”
