In this function Ms. Akuno, who currently is the Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic Affairs at The Co-operative University of Kenya, will lead a 12-member Executive Board – made up of representatives from Africa, America, the Arab World, Asia and Europe. She is the first Kenyans to be elected in the prestigious position and the second African for the position since 1988.

"I think IMC’s role“, says the new IMC President, “could not be more needed today in a world characterised by segregation and strife. That music can restore sanity and engage people of diverse heritages, ideological orientations and even intellectual capacities is a fact on, which I would wish IMC to ride, thereby being an inclusive organisation that has, makes and demands room for all music practitioners, no matter their level and form of engagement."

Emily Achieng’ Akuno has spent over 30 years in University level teaching, research and administration. She has served in various management capacities in Kenya and abroad, including Kenyatta University, Maseno University, the Technical University of Kenya and the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa.

The IMZ congratulates the new IMC President as well as the new Executive Board!
