Hjoe Moono Writes
It is such a delight to see Zambians playing at the World Stage.
Today, President Hakainde Hichilema was welcomed to the World Bank and met by a fellow Zambian, Dr. Samuel Munzele Maimbo who is the World Bank’s Director for Mobilization and Corporate Finance.
Dr. Maimbo was promoted to this position last year, making him one of the World Bank’s highest ranked officers leading a portfolio in charge of lending to developing countries. As Director, he is the highest ranked Zambian working in the World Bank.
Prior to this appointment, he was Head of Financing for Development Unit & Senior Adviser, Office of the Managing Director & Chief Financial Officer at World Bank Group World Bank Group.
A Rhodes Scholar, Dr. Maimbo holds a Ph.D. in Public Administration (Banking) from the University of Manchester, an MBA in Finance, (University of Nottingham), a BSc. in Accounting with Distinction (Copperbelt University, Zambia) and is a Fellow Chartered Certified Accountant (FCCA, UK). Prior to joining the World Bank, he worked at the Bank of Zambia and PWC.
It must have been a delight for the President to meet a fellow Zambian at such a high level at the World Bank!
Indeed, education is perhaps the single most important thing that ought to be on the priorities of all.
