Ma­tiza ap­points new Zi­nara board

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Tendai Mu­gabe Senior Reporter

TRANS­PORT and In­fras­truc­tural Devel­op­ment Min­is­ter Joel Big­gie Ma­tiza has ap­pointed a new board for the Zim­babwe Na­tional Road Ad­min­is­tra­tion chaired by En­gi­neer Michael Madanha.

Eng Madanha is a sea­soned en­gi­neer who has served as Deputy Min­is­ter in the Min­istry of Trans­port and In­fras­truc­tural Devel­op­ment in 2013.

The new board was ap­pointed fol­low­ing the dis­so­lu­tion of the Mr Wil­fred Ramwi-led board last year, which was ac­cused of cov­er­ing up cor­rup­tion at the paras­tatal.

Other mem­bers of the new board led by Eng Madanha are Naa­son Mudzara, Lizwe Fun­gai Bhunu, Run­yararo Jambo, Mal­com Seremwe, Asher Em­mer­son and Christo­pher Shumba.

The pri­mary task of the board, ac­cord­ing to Min­is­ter Ma­tiza, is to en­sure that the man­age­ment of Zi­nara is prop­erly struc­tured.

It is also ex­pected to im­ple­ment rec­om­men­da­tions of the Grant Thorn­ton au­dit re­port which un­earthed se­ri­ous cor­rup­tion at the paras­tatal.

Min­is­ter Ma­tiza said he was con­fi­dent that the new board would turn around Zi­nara’s for­tunes.

“These are peo­ple of in­tegrity who can drive Zi­nara and these are peo­ple who will be able to drive Zi­nara,” he said.

“The face of Zi­nara will change with this team. As they get into of­fice, they should look at the man­age­ment it­self to en­sure that it is prop­erly struc­tured and stream­lined and they also need to look at the fi­nan­cial ac­tiv­i­ties as quickly as pos­si­ble.”
