Kampala/ Kigali / Nairobi / Dar Es Salaam
Darren Olivier and Menzi Maboyi travelled to East Africa in September 2016. Other than to have one on one discussions with the Ugandan Registrar on a particular matter, the purpose of the trip was to visit our associated offices in the region to assess their ongoing capabilities and undertake a Due Diligence exercise on their operations. We also wanted to pay courtesy calls on the Registrars of each country to discuss Registry operations and any challenges we may be experiencing with the Registry.
