The government has delayed the launch of the Women’s Bank, which is being setup to support female entrepreneurs. The government will inject $10 million to fund the bank. Ironically, the government has appointed a man to head the bank. Zimpapers chief executive officer Matthews Kunaka has been appointed as the board chairperson.
Minister of Women’s Affairs Nyasha Chikwinya said:
We have the chairman of the bank…….some said the chairman should be a woman and I said no, we do not do things that way. We are looking for a competent person who is able to drive the bank forward. A man or woman with a vision and passion for women, who is able to articulate issues for women and bring whatever women want, in terms of financial inclusion, onto the table.
