The Zhaga Consortium is pleased to announce the appointment of Musa Unmehopa as its new Secretary General, effective from April 1, 2014.

Musa replaces Menno Treffers, who has held the post of Secretary General since Zhaga was launched in March 2010.

Musa Unmehopa has been involved in international standardization across several industries for almost 20 years, serving in various chair positions and directorships.
