Staff of the Sierra Leone Embassy in the State of Kuwait have today officially welcomed the newly appointed Counsellor, Madam Kumba Nyandemoh, who has represented Sierra Leone in different foreign missions.
The official welcoming programme was organised in the Embassy’s Conference Hall, in Al-Zahra.
In his opening remarks, the Head of Chancery, Mr Momodu Wurie, welcomed Mrs Nyandemoh to the Mission and noted that he was looking forward to working with her, especially to advance the agenda of the Embassy. He disclosed that the Counsellor assumed her tour of duty in November 2019, but given that the Ambassador was out of the country they were unable to formally welcome her.
Sierra Leone Ambassador to the State of Kuwait, Her Excellency Haja Ishata Thomas, in her statement, welcomed Mrs Kumba Nyandemoh and expressed her sincere thanks and appreciation for the support she has been providing since her arrival last year, adding further that every staff of the Embassy was an ambassador representing Sierra Leone and promoting its interest.
“The Sierra Leone Embassy in the State of Kuwait is a family, irrespective of race, nationality, region, tribe or affiliation. I believe Mrs Nyandemoh has adapted to life in Kuwait. I must admit this year will be a busy one, especially in fulfilling pending programmes and initiating new development and investment activities for our beloved nation. This is achievable because, with the addition of the Counsellor, we now have the formidable team to actualise our objectives,”* HE Ishata Thomas said.
Welcoming the Counsellor, the Financial Attaché, Mr Christopher Freeman congratulated Mrs Nyandemoh on her appointment and wished her the very best in the course of her duty. He mentioned further that the Embassy was thrilled to have her as an integral member of the family, noting that the Sierra Leone Embassy in Kuwait would always be a wonderful place to work. He appraised that the Mission has made significant progress in recent times and that was as a result of strong, dedicated and exemplary leadership inspired by the Ambassador and Head of Chancery. He concluded that the Mission would hope to tap from her experience gained in other sectors over the year.
