    Retired President of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) Getrude Mongela said yesterday that the five years she had served in the African body had proved to the world that Tanzanian women were achievers.

    Speaking to reporters at the Mwalimu Nyerere International Airport yesterday soon after she jetted in from South Africa, Mongela said she had made Africa, Tanzania and women of the continent proud.

    Mongela handed over the presidency to her successor Idriss Ndele Mousa of Chad in May, this year.

    Mongela said during her five year tenure she established strong foundation for Pan- African Parliament by standing firm in ensuring that regulations and protocols were adhered to.

    The Pan African Parliament was established in order to ensure that the peoples of Africa are fully involved in the economic development and integration of the continent.

    Mongela dismissed as baseless claims that she stepped down controversially from Pan African parliament, saying that the composition, functions, powers and organization of the Pan-African Parliament are defined in the protocol providing thereof.

    “I had a clean audit record as president although there were some audit queries, she said.
    She said she would work hand in hand with her successor.

    On challenges as PAP president, she cited meager budget allocation and human resources as factors that hinder smooth running of the body.

    “We started from scratch without a single paper, and with a composition of members speaking six different languages we needed the support staff of the Pan-African Parliament.

    She singled out a permanent building being put in South Africa and a trust fund established on 26 May, 2005 as her main achievements.

    Trust Fund she emphasized will promote good governance, transparency and democracy, peace security and stability, gender equality and development in the integration of African people within Africa and other nations.

    It will also support the fight against HIV/Aids, hunger and poverty on the continent.

    She did not retire voluntalily, but was forced to step down from the Presidency because she put her hand in the till and we Wadanganyika will have to pay back to the Pan African parliament secretariat a cool U.S.$ 100,000+from our taxes because of her shameful character! She has been a disgrace to our country!!
