Corruption scandal: Zinara fires CEO

  |   Zimbabwe / Zimbabwe News

ROAD administrator, Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (Zinara) wielded the axe on chief executive officer Nancy Masiyiwa-Chamisa on Thursday as the corruption scandal rocking the parastatal reached tipping point. Masiyiwa-Chamisa has reportedly crossed swords with Transport minister Joram Gumbo, who stands accused of protecting a group of senior managers whose jobs were on the line for various offences.

Board chairperson Wilfred Ramwi refused to comment on the matter and only said: “I am sorry, I will not be talking to you. It’s unfortunate.” Masiyiwa-Chamisa could neither deny nor confirm the development. "I cannot comment,” she said.

The Zinara board has reportedly met five times in the past six weeks and the legal secretary, identified as Mujokoro, argued it had sought authority from Gumbo.
“I do not speak on behalf of the board, but all I can say is we are supposed to meet once every quota, but all other meetings have the authority of the minister,” she said.

According to the letter of suspension signed by Ramwi, Masiyiwa-Chamisa was suspended with pay and benefits. Charges against the Zinara boss include “willful abuse of authority and victimisation of officers of the authority based on factors not driven from recorded detail or their conduct and performance.”
