The former UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative for the Republic of Uganda, speaking as the country marked the National Heroes’ Day celebrations on Wednesday June 9, Ms Malango revealed that she has been promoted me to serve as Director Economic Affairs for the Regional Economic Commissions at UN Headquarters in New York.
Ms Malango also used this event to say bid farewell to Uganda after spending five years. She will be leaving to the New York where she has been redeployed.
“I first came to this country as UNDP Representative in 2016 and accepted the honor to serve as UN Resident Coordinator and do reporting to the President and the UN Secretary General following the UN reform in 2019. After five cumulative years of service, the UN Secretary General has promoted me to serve as Director Economic Affairs for the Regional Economic Commissions at UN Headquarters in New York,” Ms Malango said.
I am an advocate, a change manager and an effective leader with a proven track record of diverse experience in international affairs within and outside the United Nations. Born in Bata, Equatorial Guinea, I successfully passed the National Competitive Examination for Humanitarian Affairs within the United Nations in 2000 at the top of my class, completed my primary education in the United States of America, my secondary education in Spain and my university studies in Nigeria. I am commited to continuous learning, and have taken courses in leadership, management and conflict prevention. I am an avid reader who works in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. I believe in communicating to everyone in their comfort zone.
I believe that there are unique opportunities at the global level to redefine and improve the relationships between citizens and states in emerging economies and the “global system” hosted by the United Nations. I look forward to being part of the “bridge” for these opportunities to materialize.
We wishing her lots of success and happiness in her new position. Best of luck!
