"FORMER president Mary Robinson has been appointed to a special role within the United Nations to oversee the troubled Great Lakes region of Africa.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon confirmed Ms Robinson would be tasked as the UN Special Envoy for the region, where her role would include helping to promote peace in the troubled Democratic Republic of Congo."
It is indeed good to see the UN continuing to roll out its Peace Mission around the world, and I cannot help but think of the many missionaries who voluntarily put their lives on the line to promote the furtherance of justice and peace in the world.
I wish Mary Robinson every success in this role, but I do wonder what sort of remuneration if any she will receive for it.
