I was also seconded to assist the observers during the election of the Democratic Republic of Congo, writing reports regarding the progress in various electoral stations throughout the DRC.

I further served as part of the group of Parliamentary Officials who were seconded to the 118th Inter-Parliamentary Union when it was hosted by the Republic of South Africa in 2008. My functions included registering and assisting various delegates from respective countries with relevant information in the reception area/information desk as well as in the Chamber where the plenaries were held.

I have excellent organisational abilities; I have knowledge of the legislative process and parliamentary processes and procedures.

I am confident and articulate and love to interact with people. I have excellent communication skills.

You will see from my enclosed CV that I am computer literate with experience in Hansard word processing. I always strive for excellence by giving my very best and paying specific attention to detail.
