The Executive Secretary of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), Stergomena Lawrence Tax, is expected in Zimbabwe Thursday for a three-day working visit, state media reported Wednesday.

Quoting the SADC secretariat’s public relations unit, the Herald newspaper said Tax would interact with representatives of regional organs based in the country during the visit and attend the second graduation of the Southern African Regional Police Chiefs Cooperation Organisation.

“The Executive Secretary of the Southern African Development Community, Her Excellency Dr Stergomena Lawrence Tax will on 28-30 November, 2018 undertake a mission to the Republic of Zimbabwe,” the unit said in a statement.

“Among other engagements, Her Excellency Dr Tax is expected to attend the second graduation ceremony of the Southern African Regional Police Chiefs Cooperation Organisation (SARPCCO) Centre of Excellence and hold discussions with management of SADC Regional Peace Training Centre in Harare on 29th November, 2018,” the statement said.

She will also tour the Interpol Regional Bureau where she will be briefed on its operations before addressing the management.

“The Executive Secretary is being accompanied on this mission by the Director of Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Affairs at the SADC Secretariat, Jorge Cardoso, and legal counsel Phineas Matto and other secretariat staff.”

Zimbabwe was in August elected deputy chairperson of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation at the regional bloc’s 38th Summit of Heads of State and Government in Namibia. Enditem
