ITU in Africa

​​​

It is with great sadness that ITU announces that two ITU staff members were on board the Ethiopian Airlines flight that was lost on 10 March 2019.

Mr Marcelino Tayob, a national of Mozambique, worked as a Senior Advisor for the ITU Regional Office for Africa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He joined ITU in 1997.
  
Ms Maygenet Abebe, a national of Ethiopia, served as administrative assistant, also at the ITU Regional Office for Africa in Addis Ababa. She joined ITU in 2010.​

We mourn their loss and the loss of the lives of United Nations staff members and everyone onboard that flight bound for Nairobi.​​

ITU commends the quick response of the Government of Ethiopia and volunteers who have been working tirelessly to assist those in need. 

Houlin Zhao, ITU Secretary-General​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
