Former Rwanda tourism chief named to African Leadership Initiative


(eTN) – Rosette Rugamba, immediate former head of ORTPN (Rwanda’s Office of Tourism and National Parks); then deputy CEO of the Rwanda Development Board in charge of tourism and conservation; and now managing director of her own tourism business at Songa Limited has been selected as one of only three participants by the African Leadership Initiative (ALI).

The ALI East Africa Foundation is conducting its third intake since 2002, and the newly-named fellows were selected for their talent, their achievements, and their ability to provide future leadership for their country’s business community and civic society.

The ALI East Africa Foundation is supported by, among others, the Aspen Institute from the United States and also corporate supporters from the wider region and the Letsema Foundation of South Africa.

Figures provided to this correspondent speak of over 200 existing fellows under the AIL East Africa Foundation, while well over 1,300 fall under the global umbrella of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
