I took this photo when Helen visited my school. I also had a photo taken with her which I posted earlier last month.The water engineer was overseas when I has the photo taken, and he couldn't believe his eyes.
At that time, she had lost the election, lost her prime ministership she held for nine years. My friend C said Helen was destined for higher places.
True to C's words, Helen is now, the incoming head of the United Nations Development Programme, being appointed unanimously by the 192-member General Assembly.Her new position is the third most powerful in the UN, behind only the secretary general and his deputy. She replaces Kemal Dervis, a former Turkish cabinet minister.
Way to go, Ka Pai! Helen.
