A NOTE OF THANK YOU AND FAREWELL

Dear Colleagues,

A NOTE OF THANK YOU AND FAREWELL

With effect from 1st June 2017, my services to the East African Community and, the Civil Aviation Safety and Security Oversight Agency (CASSOA) came to an end following the expiry of my term as Executive Director.

I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve the people of the East African Community in the Aviation Industry, particularly as one of the pioneers of EAC CASSOA immediately upon its establishment in 2007. This gave me an opportunity to work with distinguished professionals in and outside the Region, within and outside the Aviation Industry; all of whom have been instrumental in the development of my career and skills.

Allow me to appreciate, first the Board, and then your great support and the positive role that each one of you played as a team in moving CASSOA forward to a status envied by many in the industry and EAC as a whole. Your advice, suggestions and constructive criticisms were all valuable in my decision making to ably steer CASSOA where its founders wished it to be. Thank you.

As I leave the service of the Community, I pledge to be available for the industry in the Region as and when a need arises. Lastly, it is my humble request to you to extend the same, or even greater support to the officer holding the fort, Mr. Emile Nguza Arao, in order to ensure continuity in building a robust Aviation Oversight System in the Region.
Regards,

Robert Mwesigwa Nviiri
