|Embau Moheni, minister in the Ministry of National Security|
Government Senator Embau Moheni has been appointed as the new minister in the Ministry of National Security. The Tobago born Moheni had previously served in the Ministries of Arts and Multiculturalism and National Diversity and Social Integration.
Moheni is the first NJAC member to serve in the parliament of Trinidad and Tobago. He was a former principal of his family owned Elizabeth’s College and earned the reputation as an ace Mathematics teacher.
Moheni who heads the Tobago arm of NJAC is known to live a highly disciplined life and does extensive research on a variety of issues. There is a school of thought that Moheni’s move into the National Security Ministry could contribute to the clinical planning needed in the fight against crime. Moheni will join newly appointed National Security Minister Gary Griffith in his attempt to take the crime problem head on, in order to stem the gang related killing spree.
Moheni has had an astronomical rise within NJAC. He now serves as a Deputy political leader of the party which was formed in 1969. He has also spearheaded the promotion of a number of cultural events, including, the Tobago Young Kings, the Tobago Calypso Queen and a host of Junior Calypso competitions for the past 22 years.
At present, Moheni is the brain behind the current NJAC Emancipation community rallies. Commenting on Moheni’s appointment to the National Security Ministry, one of his longtime associates Llenga Llenga told the Tobago News that Moheni’s “austere lifestyle would serve him well in National Security; he does not smoke or consume alcohol and is extreme in his disciplined approach to life. I have every confidence in his honesty and he will give a good account of himself in the ministry.”
