Bimha ap­points new CTC board

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Business -

IN­DUS­TRY and Com­merce Min­is­ter Mike Bimha on Tues­day ap­pointed a new 10 mem­ber board of direc­tors for the Com­pe­ti­tion and Tar­iff Com­mis­sion (CTC).

The com­mis­sion is tasked with en­sur­ing fair play in the con­duct of busi­ness to make sure that other play­ers and con­sumers are not prej­u­diced by big­ger play­ers or those en­joy­ing a mo­nop­oly.

Engi­neer An­thony Mutemi, who is the for­mer man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the now de­funct Steel­net Zim­babwe Lim­ited, chairs the new CTC board.

Other board mem­bers in­clude economists Peter Kadzere and Takunda Mu­gaga, lawyer Karen Bopoto and char­tered ac­coun­tant Mercy Chi­gun­duru.

Act­ing Zim­babwe Rev­enue Au­thor­ity com­mis­sioner gen­eral, Hap­pias Kuzv­inzwa, Maria Chi­nomwe, Felis­tas Ndawi who is the fi­nance di­rec­tor for Seed Co, Dr Al­bert Makochekanwa and one Dr DB Moyo make up the rest of the board.

Min­is­ter Bimha said there was a “back­log of is­sues” that the board had to tackle as a mat­ter of ur­gency. Engi­neer Mutemi said the most im­me­di­ate task for the board would be ap­point­ing a sub­stan­tive di­rec­tor for the CTC.

“The or­gan­i­sa­tion has been run­ning for three years with­out one,” he said.

Min­is­ter Bimha also ap­pointed a new and sub­stan­tive board chair­per­son for the Zim­babwe In­ter­na­tional Trade Fair (ZITF) com­pany, Ms Ruth Ncube. Ms Ncube is the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of in­surance firm, First Mu­tual Life.

She was pre­vi­ously the board’s vice chair­per­son. Ms Ncube, who ap­pealed for the Gov­ern­ment sup­port to grow the com­pany, said her fo­cus would be on growth and trade ori­en­ta­tion, in­no­va­tion and events and ex­hi­bi­tions. — New Ziana
