Mavhaire also revived the fortunes of Zanu PF losing candidates Fred Kanzama and politburo member and President Robert Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao as well as former MP and former top spy Shadreck Chipanga.

He turned to Zanu PF’s chair for Manicaland John Mvundura to lead the Zimbabwe Electricity Distribution and Transmission Company. Murerwa, who failed to make it to the eighth Parliament during last year’s general elections, served as Finance minister from 1996 to 2007 and later as Lands and Resettlement minister between 2009 and 2013.

  1. @Waitly, waunoziva aneruzivo ne experience yezve magetsi kudarika VaRafemoyo ndiani? Akati vari ku ZPF ndiani? In any case kana kukaiswa VaBiti na VaMwonzvora vanotanga kurovana, kubvarurina ma shirts, potoda riot police wobva washaya kuti zvino toita sei!

    • Zimbabwe needs war, failure to do that we r going to suffer for the rest of our life. don wezhira does not have underwear but he is busy supporting stupid decisions. I think u r a grade seven drop out

      • Iwe Nyika Yaparara, vane pfungwa dzakasiyana nedzako are not necessarily uneducated. They may actually be far more educated than you. Tiyende kuhondo nokuti kwazopinzwa vanhu vausingade muma board? Hondo unoiziva here iwe? Svinura manhi urege kushora vamwe kunge iwe une zvawakamboita zvisvinu zhatakaona.

  2. This is nonsense. Mavhaire is a failure. We have a lot of educated people in Zimbabwe. ZESA is now too politicized it is now run like a Zanu pf company. Murerwa is a loser. He lost his MP sit he an empty vessel. It is now clear that when zanu pf was promising jobs to the people it was not for everyone it was only for connected Zanu pf members.
    As long as they keep employing and recycling failed people on Political affiliation ground Zimbabwe will remain a failed state.

  3. I hope the new boards, particularly the one at ZESA will change their corporate slogan, from “We love swtiching you off” and permit sense and hardwork to say “Here comes the light…”. Light has been accepted as an “essential vital “and for Zimbabwe a case of national survival..it should not be entrusted in the hands of thieves and incompetents who would not care less

  4. @Falcon. Why was Simon Peter Jesus’ “favourite”?He had only 12 from multitudes.What criteria was used to select the 12? Shamwari dzaakakura nadzo, vaaitamba navo bhora ku Galilee, vokumusha kwamai vake ku Hebron, ma schoolmates, vomutupo, vazukuru, vakuwasha nemaface. I would recommend you on such a board (if I had the power!) chete you are critical of everything. Dont worry, mukanyarara munenge murimo next time .

        • thanks for understanding don wezhira, go and have them. look at what zanupf do, u will c that they r vultures, thy don’t care about other people. they pretend like good people but they r selfish

      • Nyika yaparara, people who are not dull don’t insult those with opinions different from their’s. The insults you are hulling at other commentators do not show any intelligence on your part. Say something intelligent.

  5. Nhai vakuru imi, kwenyu kuri kuda basa here, imbosiiraiwo vechidiki vamboitawo imi moitawo zvishoma zvezera renyu kwete kungokambira zvese nezvamusingagoni. Handiti makabereka, mukadzidzisa, chiregaika vachikushandirai makagara – ndokuti kukuraka.

  6. To heavy in a struggling economy emphasis should be on streamlining this power entity’s spending. why so many companies in one????????. Yodyiwa mari iya, mozovavhotera futi next ext elections.

  7. They will spend more time discussing party matters seeing that most of them are active members of zanu pf. Energy business will be secondary. So my advice is stock as much firewood as you can because there will be no power generation until 2018

  8. Hamuonewo here kuti twumadhara twezanu pf hatwunwa brain itsvina dzoga,they busy destroying instead of building the nation,iko kamukweguru kekusarudza board rezesa munoti kanoziveiwo rima zvaro kkkkk,uye ambotaura zvehondo ari right ngatiitangei varume tanyanya kujairirwa mhani.

  9. apa wangoshota ndiMamutse zve apa…teamal yose yaMavhaire yekubhawa iripo yose…kusvika kuna Chademana….ini zii

  10. Tosvikakupi veduwe nema tuzvi arikuitwa aya. Zvimadhara izvi ndozvingaita here kuti magets asaenda. Ndoinonzi svoto iyi.muno mu SA hamuitwi madoti akadai. Ko ma graduates achashandawo riinhiko. Eishy ndarwadziwa. Chevari kumbonyanyoda chiiko ivo vave harahwa kudai. Takakura same pple vangori on power up to now and 4 no reasons. Ko varume ve mu Zimba vanongohumana vanotadza here kuitawo hondoo. Ko Nzvonyombiri uripiko. Lol

  11. I suggest that you should provide details of qualifications and achievements or brief CVs of appointees whenever you report on appointments to boards. It is not a good service to merely provide names of individuals when we expect you to inform and educate readers. It will be difficult for civil society to hold ministers of government accountable for these appointments unless we have detailed information on the people they appoint.

    • A very valid point. It could be ana Zuze vangoiswa because they know someone who knows someone …

    • I agree…lets get the parliamentary committee on energy interrogate their backgrounds and let confirmation to the posts stem from there. The press should not just sit there..they should interrogate the background of these fellows and if there are sticky ‘fingered pilferers’ the press should blow the whistle long and hard. We are sick and tired to a near stand still with these pilferer idiots! ZESA is a vital organ, it should not be entrusted to blind bats who steal without shame.
