Ndapiwa Segole who hails from Makobo village (near Natale) - Tutume Sub District has been announced amongst the three nominees to join the Mo Ibrahim Foundation Fellows. The programme is designed to mentor future African Leaders.  The candidates, chosen from among a pool of over 2,000 applicants, will take up posts in these three multinational organisations and benefit from direct mentorship of their current leaders. Through this annual fellowship programme, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation seeks to deepen and broaden their growing network which continues to contribute its skills and learning to a better Africa.  The Fellowships offer the opportunity to work in the executive offices of either the African Development Bank (Abidjan), the UN Economic Commission for Africa (Addis Ababa) or the International Trade Centre (Geneva). Segole is a public sector economist with extensive experience spanning nine years in development and economic planning serving the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development at a district level. In this capacity, she coordinated district economic development activities, manages government projects of all magnitudes, carried out feasibility studies to determine project viability and undertakes contingency planning and implementation. She is currently based in Ethiopia where she is serving her Fellowship duties at United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. She said the fellowship programme presents an opportunity for her to gain better understanding and a broader view of Africa's socio economic development challenges and how they can be tackled.  She added that she is also looking forward to mentorship from the highest office of intergovernmental organisation, and exposure to impact leadership.  Segole applied for the fellowship programme in August 2016 and was appointed in May 2017 and she will be engaged for 12 months. 


Segole’s Message To Young People In Botswana;  “Aspiring Young Leaders Need To Explore and realise their leadership potential regardless of where and how they have started.  I am beyond humbled to be the first public servant to ever join UNECA as a Mo Ibrahim Fellow. We all have an equal chance of making it in life. Whatever you set your mind into, go all out to achieve it, otherwise why start what you can't finish. Make use of every opportunity presented to you to learn and grow, both personally and professionally. Lastly Set yourself apart from the rest, have a high intellectual curiosity and service oriented humility”
