Business Africa Executive Council member Mthunzi Mdwaba was elected IOE Vice President for Africa for the International Organization of Employers (IOE) in June 2014. In his acceptance speech, Mr. Mthunzi thanked all his colleagues at the IOE Management Board for showing faith and confidence in his leadership.
Mr. Mthunzi was also appointed as the Spokesman for the PFA (Programme, Finance & Budget) Committee of the ILO Governing Body to speak on behalf of for all employers throughout the world. This position was entrenched when he was re-confirmed as the BUSA representative for SADC on the ILO Governing Body last year.
Mthunzi’s contribution on both occasions during which he has participated in the budget has been outstanding and has been very well received. This demonstrates the reality that as African representatives the work we are doing in the house, namely, the ILO, via the IOE is significant.
