Civil Society Public Notice Regarding the Zimbabwe KP Local Focal Point

Dear Colleagues,
As you may be aware, the matter of the Kimberly Process Local Focal Point was finally resolved at the Israel plenary with the confirmation by the KPSC of Mr. Shamiso Mtisi, a lawyer by profession and a representative of the Zimbabwe Environmental Lawyers Association (ZELA) in the Zimbabwe Civil Society KP LFP technical committee, as the coordinator of the LFP.

Earlier NANGO after extensive consultations with its members and stakeholders had backed the nomination of the Center of Research and Development Director, Mr. Farai Maguwu as the coordinator. However Mr. Maguwa stepped down as the coordinator before the KP plenary in Israel citing personal and institutional reasons, hence it was then agreed that Mr.Mtisi replaces him.

We would like to make clarifications regarding the current position and hence the Zimbabwe Civil Soceity KP LFP has issued two public notices in this regard.

Best regards,

Machinda Marongwe
