The Office of the Ombudsman, Botswana will host a meeting of the African Ombudsman & Mediators Association (AOMA), Southern Africa Region on 28 -29 November 2011 at the Phakalane Golf Resort. The meeting will start at 09:00 hrs and will be officially opened by Honourable Minister for Presidential Affairs and Public Administration Mr. Mokgweetsi Masisi. We therefore wish to invite your media house to the opening of this esteemed meeting.

This is a regional meeting in preparation for the Association’s General Assembly to be held in Mali in February 2012.
 
The African Ombudsman & Mediators Association (AOMA) exists to support and protect the independence and development of African Ombudsman institutions by promoting information exchanges and best practices for the advancement of good governance and human rights in Africa. The Vision of the Association is: “To be a respected and professional association for the promotion of Open, Accountable and Democratic Governance.”

This meeting is profoundly significant in the history of the Botswana Ombudsman Office, as this will be the country’s first time to host an event of this magnitude, specifically International Ombudsman Associations. In addition to this, the meeting will also garner the country some points in the international Governance ratings and afford the country an opportunity to interact with other Ombudsmen in the Southern African Region and share country experiences on “Ombudzing”.
