by June 18, 2014 General

“It is with both joy and sadness when I knew of Mdm Halimah’s nomination as Speaker. She has been a wonderful partner at MSF, and I have always benefitted from her frank counsel. She has been a torch bearer in our work with her passionate and tireless style. My colleagues and I will certainly miss her.

I will also like to congratulate Halimah on her nomination to be our first woman Speaker. I am heartened that I will have an opportunity to continue to work with her.”
