Faure appoints top UN man as Prime Minister

Togo's President Faure Gnassingbe has named Gilbert Fossoun Houngbo, an accountant and senior United Nations official, to be prime minister of the small West African state, the government said on Monday.

Houngbo, who since late 2005 has directed the U.N. Development Programme (UNDP)'s regional bureau for Africa, replaced Komlan Mally who resigned on Friday as premier, the Togolese government's website said.Togo, a former French colony that is the world's fourth-largest producer of phosphate, has obtained debt cancellation accords this year from the World Bank and Western creditors and Houngbo's appointment was expected to further cement relations with foreign donors and lenders.
