As evidence of the deep sense of fraternity among African brothers shown by the Equatorial Guinea Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono-Nca, one of his first activities of 2019 was to visit the recently appointed mayor of the Belgian town of Ganshoren, Pierre Kompany.
This is no ordinary mayor, as Kompany, of Congolese origin, was elected in December and made history, becoming the first black mayor in the history of Belgium. Nvono-Nca wanted to be one of the first to visit and formally congratulate him on his recent appointment. Furthermore, at the meeting, the Ambassador wanted to report on some of the projects being carried out by the embassy.
For his part, Pierre Kompany, taking advantage of the significant visit by the diplomatic representative, wanted to officially present those working with him at the town hall, and invite him to a ceremony for the presentation of the Nelson Mandela Medal.
