LUCY TAMLYN ‘THE AFRICAN’, FROM COTONOU TO BANGUI

Justin BELONGO – Karen-Ann SULLIVAN

BANGUI [LNC] – LUCY TAMLYN REPLACES JEFFREY HAWKINS AS AMBASSADOR OF THE UNITED STATES IN THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC. SHE FORMERLY HELD THE SAME POSITION OF AMBASSADOR IN COTONOU (BENIN) SINCE OCTOBER 2015. REPLACED OVER THERE BY PATRICIA MAHONEY. SHE IS A SEASONED DIPLOMAT, WITH EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN AFRICA.

At least, she fills in Bangui, the vacuum left by the departure of Hawkins. In fact, the US Chancery in Bangui, since February 2017, had been headed by two chargés d’affaires. 
Mrs. Tamlyn officially presented her letter of credence to president TOUADERA, the day before yesterday, during a ceremony that took place at the Palais de la Renaissance.
