Matt Hancock appointed UN special envoy to help Covid recovery in Africa
The Guardian says Matt Hancock has announced he has been appointed a special representative to the United Nations. The former health secretary will focus on helping African countries recover from Covid-19.
Hancock said he was “honoured” to have been given the role, adding on Twitter: “I’ll be working with the UN, the UN Economic Commission for Africa to help African economic recovery from the pandemic and promote sustainable development.”
It comes four months after he resigned from his Cabinet role for breaking social distancing rules by kissing and embracing an aide in his office.
