INTRODUCTION
Our esteemed Guest of Honour and former IoDZ Chairman, Mr Boyman Vincent Mancama, Fellow Councillors and former Councillors, IoDZ Honorary Life Members, IoDZ Fellows and Members, Senior Government Officials here present, distinguished delegates, ladies and gentlemen, good evening. I feel honoured and privileged to welcome you to this evening’s special event. Esteemed colleagues, today is no ordinary day, it is the birthday of Institute. I should add that it no ordinary birthday at that, by its 60th birthday. From its humble beginnings on the 12th March 1958, your Institute has endured the vicissitudes of history to this special day, where we are gathered to kick start its diamond jubilee celebrations.

IoDZ Chairman, Mr Benson Gasura and your fellow Councillors;
Former chairpersons and Councillors of IoDZ here present;
Members of IoDZ;
Government Officials here present;
Distinguished Guests;
Ladies and Gentlemen.
Good evening!

It is an honour and a privilege to be accorded this opportunity to officiate on this special occasion as the Institute is launching what I am informed is going to be roughly a year – long period of its diamond jubilee celebrations. This is indeed an important milestone. At 60 years of age, a person is accorded the privileges of a senior citizen.
