The President of the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), Dr. Benedict Oramah, has congratulated Samallie Kiyingi, the Bank’s Director of Legal Services, on being recognized as one of the 2018 Most Influential People of African Descent.

Ms. Kiyingi was named one of the 2018 Most Influential People of African Descent in new rankings released by the Most Influential 100 Company. The company publishes a global 100 list that identifies high achievers of African descent, aged 40 or below, in the fields of politics and governance; business and entrepreneurship; media and culture; and humanitarianism and religion.

In a message to Ms. Kiyinji, President Oramah told her that the win was an “honour you have brought, not only to yourself, but to the Bank. It is a feat we should all be proud of. And for you, there can be no better force for continued dedication and hard work.”

“Thank you very much for shining light on the Bank; thank you very much for elevating the African woman!”, added the President.

The global 100 list of the Most Influential People of African Descent, which will be released annually until 2024, is being organised in support of the International Decade for People of African Descent, which was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly and is being observed from 2015 to 2024.
