MEFMI will conduct a third follow up mission to the National Bank of Rwanda (BNR) from 14 to 18 March 2016. The objectives of this mission are to provide technical assistance to the Bank, on analysis and interpretation of data and report writing.  The report is expected to be presented to BNR Board of Governors for consideration and approval.

MEFMI will conduct a seminar to discuss the draft Risk Based Supervision Guidelines for Banks.  The seminar which will be held in Harare, Zimbabwe from 30 to 31 March at the Rainbow Towers Hotel is expected to act as a sounding board for the draft document.  The event will also be used to solicit additional comments to enable MEFMI to finalise the document for publication.


Today, 8 March, is International Women’s Day.  This is a day honoured and celebrated throughout the world by progressive men and women who are working hard towards the achievement of gender parity.  Today the world celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.

As MEFMI let us join the world by supporting the agenda of gender parity by taking action as champions of gender mainstreaming.

As part of its drive to mobilise additional resources, MEFMI is inviting reputable and seasoned consultant(s) with hands-on experience in designing funding proposals for capacity building / training institutions.  The major mandate for the individual / institution is to develop bankable proposals that will enhance MEFMI’s resource envelop, in support of the Institute’s mandate to strengthen the capacity of MEFMI member countries. The proposals should target donor agencies and international foundations that support capacity building.  Please click here for details.

Dr Caleb Fundanga will today deliver a speech to mark the inauguration of  Maseru  Securities Market (MSM). The event will be attended by financial markets industry players in Lesotho and Senior Government Officials.

The MSM is a Central Bank of Lesotho project under the wider capital markets development initiative. It is a component in the Financial Sector Development Strategy whose purpose is to enhance capital markets depth and breadth by attracting new participants and by creating a conducive environment for floating and trading financial securities.

While the journey to the development of the MSM has been full of challenges, the Central bank of Lesotho is greateful to the critical role played by MEFMI as a key strategic partner, through a number of Missions towards this goal.

The Government of Lesotho has embarked on a Reform Programme to address challenges identified in different components of the Public Financial Management System.  The reform is being partly financed by a grant from the African Development Bank (AfDB). External audit is one of the areas the reform is focusing on, to address institutional and technical capacity constraints facing the Office of the Auditor-General in performing its mandate.

As part of its endeavours to break new ground in capacity building and policy advisory work for its member countries MEFMI held a very successful inaugural Annual Research and Policy Seminar on 10th December 2015 at Rainbow Towers Hotel, Harare, Zimbabwe. The Seminar was necessitated by the need to strengthen MEFMI’s research function to complement the Institute’s advisory services by providing evidence based policy and technical advice to member states.

We would like to inform all stakeholders that the Secretariat will be closed for the festive season from Monday 21 December 2015 and will resume business on Monday 4 January 2016.  We apologise for any inconveniences.


MEFMI embarked on an e-learning programme in 2015.  The objective of the programme is to expand the Institute’s training outreach to member states while leveraging the power of new information and communication technologies for cost-effectiveness. The need for e-learning had been openly expressed by most client institutions as captured by several Institute documents over the years, such as the 2009 and 2014 Impact and Needs Assessment Reports, the 2010 Mid-Term Review and the 2012 – 2016 Strategic Plan.
