NOMINATING-OFFICER: PAO
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Mr. Tshibinda has been the legal advisor to the University of
Lubumbashi since 1999. The University of Lubumbashi is the second
university in the DRC, after the University of Kinshasa. Academic
leadership in the DRC is often hampered by the fact that
appointments to leadership positions are based on cronyism and
personal and political connections. Mr. Tshibinda appears to be
an exception to this. He should continue to advance within the
Congolese higher education system. His participation in this
program will be of great long-term benefit to the Congo. The
Country Team has approved this nominee.
