Sports CS Amina Mohammed vies for WTO Director General post

Sports and Culture Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohamed is set to vie for the position of the Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

CS Amina will run for the post alongside five other candidates who include Nigeria’s Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Egypt’s Abdel Hamid-Mamdouh.

This is CS Amina’s second stab at the position which is due to fall vacant on August 31, 2020 after the current WTO Director-General, Roberto Azevedo steps down.

CS Amina, who served Kenya’s Foreign Affairs Minister between 2013 and 2018, holds the record of being the first African chairperson of the WTO ministerial conference which is the body’s highest forum – a position she held during the 2015 WTO ministerial conference that was held in Nairobi.
