GLAPD is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Francine Ikirezi as interim Director General. The appointment was made by a majority of the directors during a meeting last week. Mrs. Ikirezi has been working as GLAPD’s executive secretary. Mr Theophile Elongo’s involvement in the management of GLAPD Int. has now ceased.

The remaining board members are looking to re-establish GLAPD Int. as a professional, open, and transparent, organisation. They hope to regain the confidence of those members, ex-directors, advisers and supporters who have left the organisation in the past and that they now will able rejoin GLAPD Int. to provide support to the Great Lakes communities. The board is planning to hold an Annual General Meeting in due course and a date for the AGM will be announced soon. At the AGM all board positions will be declared vacant and a new board of directors will be elected. We thank Francine for taking on the challenging role of interim Director General.

Francine can be contacted at the GLAPD office, or via email at  or by phoning: 0478 108 628.

We will continue to update you on any further steps taken to resolve this issue and we welcome your support.
