Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa has sent a message of condolence following the death of former top civil servant, Bradah Silvester Maunganidze who passed away on Sunday.
In a statement, Mutsvangwa described Maunganidze as an advisor who was involved in a number of community related activities as well as being a board member of various organisations like Agricultural Rural Development Authority (ARDA), Helpage Zimbabwe, and the Great Zimbabwe University (GZU).
“He was a great social counsellor who initiated a number of fundraisers for community projects. Maunganidze rose from humble beginnings as a school teacher at Razi Secondary school in 1981, a career he advanced until he left the teaching profession as a lecturer in 1990. He then joined the President’s Department and rose through the ranks to become a divisional intelligence officer, a post he left in 2001 when he was appointed liaison officer for France,” Mutsvangwa said.
Maunganidze held the diplomatic services post until 2003 when he was appointed principal director in the office of the President and Cabinet, under the Anti-Corruption department.
