ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF HIS CANDIDATURE FOR
MEMBERSHIP OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE
It is an exceptional honour to be nominated for membership of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). I am humbled that the IOC Members Election Commission deemed me fit to be part of this eminent organisation. I am also honoured to be the candidate that is representing Africa.
My journey with the Olympic Movement began almost 20 years ago when I joined Madiba in 1997 on his visit to Olympic House in Lausanne.
Last year, I was invited to serve on the Olympic Channel Commission which has been very exciting.
Should my candidature be successful, I look forward to working with the IOC and contributing my knowledge and skills, and adding value to the Olympic Movement of now and the future.
