Announcement of WBU 2nd Vice President

Dear WBU members,

On behalf of WBU President Fred Schroeder, we are delighted to inform you that the election process to elect a new 2nd Vice President, following the sudden passing of Dr. Elly Macha has now completed. Please welcome Ms. Donatilla Kanimba from the Rwanda Union of the Blind as the new WBU 2nd Vice President. 

As you know, the election was conducted with the WBU Executive Committee and was managed by the WBU Nominations Committee with the support of our WBU external audit firm.  There were four candidates, all from Africa. Two were female and two were male. Donatilla received a majority of the votes cast on the first ballot and so was declared the winner of the election.

We thank all candidates for putting their names forward and sincerely congratulate Donatilla on her election.

With kind regards,

Penny​
