As reported by WorldTourismWire the UNWTO Secretary General called for a meeting of Madrid based ambassadors on August 25 to discuss the General Assembly. Most certainly Zimbabwe’s concern about flaws in the election process of the nominated Secretary General Zurab Pololikashvili should be a major issue for debate.
It appears WorldTourismWire reports encouraged Ambassador Rudo Chitiga from Zimbabwe to travel to Madrid as well. She is Zimbabwe’s ambassador based in Paris, France. Spain and UNWTO is also part of her responsibility. Most likely she will be facing Ambassador from Georgia and nominee Zurab Pololikashvili.
Ambassador Chitiga was the spokesperson of the Zimbabwe campaign team and said in May the country and the continent was devastated by the election outcome.
At the same time, reliable sources told WorldTourismWire Ambassador Dho Young-shim is on a plane traveling from Seoul to Madrid planning to attend this meeting as well. Dho was a candidate in the election and walked away third place. So far she has been quiet about the election issue and the concerns raised by her fellow candidate HE Dr. Walter Mzembi, Minister of Tourism and Hospitality for Zimbabwe.
Georgia, Zimbabwe, South Korea and the Madrid based diplomatic community is in for an exciting meeting tomorrow, hopefully opening the floor for a solution to this election crisis the organization is facing at the upcoming assembly in Chengdu, China.
