Roma, 10 aprile 2013. Con la presentazione delle credenziali al Presidente Giorgio Napolitano, entra nel pieno delle sue funzioni il nuovo Ambasciatore del Sudafrica, la dott.ssa Nomatemba Tambo, nominata al posto di Thenjiwe Ethel Mtintso, rientrata in patria per fine mandato nel dicembre scorso.

Dopo la laurea in storia e inglese a Londra e la successiva specializzazione in legge all’Università del Witwatersrand a Johannesburg, l’ambasciatore Tambo, figlia del defunto presidente dell’African National Congress (ANC) e leader anti-apartheid Oliver Tambo, entra nel servizio diplomatico nel 2007 e nel 2008 assume il suo primo incarico come console generale del Sudafrica a Hong Kong.

Oltre a far parte dell’African National Congress, è membro di diverse organizzazioni femminili, tra cui l’International Women’s Forum e il National Council of Africa Women, e trustee (amministratore fiduciario) della Oliver & Adelaide Tambo Foundation. Inoltre è stata cofondatrice e presidente della South African Women’s Chamber of Commerce. Attiva anche in campo giornalistico, ha lavorato come produttrice e presentatrice di programmi televisivi e ha diretto varie riviste per il pubblico femminile.

Nel corso del cordialissimo colloquio per la presentazione delle credenziali, il Presidente Napolitano ha lodato il ruolo che sta svolgendo il Sudafrica nel contesto internazionale, specialmente a livello africano e di organismi multilaterali come l’ONU, per la promozione della pace e dello sviluppo nel rispetto dei diritti umani; da parte sua l’Ambasciatore Tambo ha ringraziato il Presidente, impegnandosi a lavorare per rinsaldare ulteriormente i già eccellenti rapporti tra Italia e Sudafrica.
