This is part of our collective desire to reshape our political landscape, moving away from the divisiveness which has destructively dominated the operations of national institutions towards a spirit of inclusiveness and due recognition. Many have served with distinction, honor, commitment and selflessness and so we must recognize them as our heroes for without their contribution we would not be the nation we are today.

 

The appointments are for a period of three years and took effect from March 13th , 2012.
