Chibwana said it is a great honour and privilege for him to be appointed a Trustee for the MISA Regional Board.
"This is a familiar territory as I have worked in trusts for over dozen years and have served as chairman for Finance and Administration committees in a number of boards where I do sit. I believe that the experience I have gained over the years would prove handy in this appointment," Chibwana said.
