Re: New ambassadors at the Belgian Court/what a shame about the Dutch representative....
... and he couldn't even bother to polish his shoes
My god i've students dressed up better for their annual gala parties in hired costumes than this ambassador. Part of his salary is for representational costs so it's not to much to ask to appear in clothes that fit and have been ironed...... Embarrassing to realise that this its the man in one of the most important diplomatic positions as the ambassador to Belgium also has to deal with the EU and Nato headquarters.
From the Belgian royal website:
De nieuwe ambassadeurs van Ethiopië (mevr. Hirut Zemene Kassa), Soedan (dhr. Abdelrahim Ahmed Khalil), Rwanda (dhr. Dieudonné Rugambwa Sebashongore) en Nederland (dhr. Jan Kleiweg de Zwaan) hebben deze voormiddag hun geloofsbrieven overhandigd.
Les nouveaux ambassadeurs d’Ethiopie (Mme Hirut Zemene Kassa), du Soudan (M. Abdelrahim Ahmed Khalil), du Rwanda (M. Dieudonné Rugambwa Sebashongore) et des Pays-Bas (M. Jan Kleiweg de Zwaan) ont présenté ce matin leurs lettres de créance.
The new ambassadors of Ethiopia (Ms. Hirut Zemene Kassa), Sudan (Mr. Abdelrahim Ahmed Khalil), Rwanda (Mr. Dieudonné Rugambwa Sebashongore) and The Netherlands (Mr. Jan Kleiweg de Zwaan) have presented their credentials this morning.
My own note here: what a shame a new ambassador presents himself on the most important day in his new job in such a shabby way!
Really, does this man have no respect for the occasion he is attending?
