“In collaboration with private and public sector institutions, he/she will identify, develop and implement housing and related infrastructure projects, mobilise the required resources, manage them and apply them prudently to enable Shelter Afrique to achieve its mandate.”
Shelter Afrique is also eyeing to roll out its planned issueance of $.25 billion worth of new bonds from African capital markets.It will be seeking $500 million from East Africa and a similar amount from Nigeria, with the remaining $250 million coming from its francophone markets that the new CEO will oversee.
The new appointee already has a preset track record of perfromance from the ex CEO’s that needs to be maintained.
