The African Airlines Association (AFRAA) announced that its Secretary General and CEO, Dr. Elijah Chingosho, will retire in 2017 after serving seven years in the role.

 

Mbuvi Ngunze, chairman of AFRAA Executive Committee, said: “Elijah Chingosho has been an effective leader of AFRAA, who has achieved a lot as its Secretary General and CEO. It is regrettable that he will be leaving the Association, but we respect his decision to leave AFRAA after 16 years, firstly as Director Technical and Training and in the past six years as its SG and CEO. The Executive Committee through its Governance, Nominations and HR Committee will embark on a search for his successor. In the meantime, the Executive Committee will continue to guide and support Elijah and his team in their mission to deliver a safe, efficient and sustainable African airline industry.” 

Chingosho said: “After 16 years in AFRAA of which seven years were at SG and CEO, I believe it is time for me to retire and leave the organisation. It has been a great privilege and honour to lead AFRAA, and I am proud of what the AFRAA team has achieved during my term of office. I would like to thank the Executive Committee for their support and guidance and the AFRAA membership fraternity. I am fully committed to lead AFRAA until my successor is appointed.”
