Parly scrutinises Air Zimbabwe management CVs


The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Transport and Infrastructural Development has released names of Air Zimbabwe board members and management who submitted their curriculum vitaes for scrutiny.


Chairperson of the committee Dextor Nduna said on Monday they scrutinised CVs of board members Abdulman Eric Harid (acting chairperson), Patience Zenda, Rudo Mavis Faranisi, Edwin Maxwell Zvandasara, Tadiwanashe Mukudzeyi Mangwengwende, Gift Noko, Luckson Muzondo and Munyaradzi Nzarayapenga.

The names of Air Zimbabwe management whose CVs were scrutinised included acting chief executive officer Edmund Murambiwa Zvandakona, Patience Tichagwa (manager, revenue and accounts) and Patience Dangwa Gachira (acting manager legal and company secretary).

Others CVs scrutinised were for Peter Mukarakate (manager passenger and cargo division), Pagiel Chimudzi (general manager finance and support services, Joseph Makonise (acting director technical operations), Edmund Lanca (director flight operations), Towanda Walter Chigwikwi (acting manager quality safety and security), and Pamela Mutsinze (acting head human resources).

Nduna said it was crucial to scrutinise their CVs in order to ensure that future investments at the struggling airline were put to good use.

“We are not going to take chances with the quality of the board and management at the airline by having square plugs in round holes,” Nduna said.

“If we do not have thinkers and good human capital to compliment efforts by future investors, then we will have
equipment that will not be properly utilised.”

The MP said Transport and Infrastructural Development minister Obert Mpofu had been invited by the committee to elaborate on the qualifications of the Air Zimbabwe officials, as well as speak on the road network and rail systems.


  1. There is nobody — NOBODY! — in Zimbabwe capable of running an airline. A management team with the skills and knowledge needs to be imported from Europe or Asia. But that would be admitting defeat, wouldn’t it.
