The team, led by Harare businessman Cletus Nyachowe, took over on September 26 after an annual/extra-ordinary meeting at which some members of the old board, including treasurer Rangarirai Mtungwazi, were retained.
Apart from resolving that Koba employs a full-time staffer to run its daily affairs and secure premises for its operations, the 12-member executive has drawn up an eight-point priority list aimed at reinvigorating the association’s programmes and reviving its visibility.
David Rusike, the association’s publicity director, said their mandate included the restoration of Kutama’s academic excellence, expansion of membership drive and execution of projects at the Mashonaland West-based school.
“Working with the board, parents-teachers association (PTA) and school administration, the incoming executive hopes to ensure that the school’s curricula and other activities contribute towards the production of a well-rounded student who is able to fit into the emerging, and dynamic world,” he said, adding this would be achieved through the introduction of such lessons as Chinese, French, Portuguese and the broadening of music genres taught.
Other members of the executive include secretary William Kwedza, legal practitioner Remember Benjamin, John Mahachi and committee member Charles Nyachowe.
