In a notice published in the Government Gazette on Friday, Finance and Development Minister Patrick Chinamasa announced Government has extended Auditor General Mrs Mildred Chiri’s term of office to February 2023, after Parliament approved her nomination by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The notice reads:
It is hereby notified, in terms of section 310 (1) as read with section 340(1)(a) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment (No.20) of 2013, that the President, with the approval of Parliament, has reappointed Mildred Chiri as Auditor-General with effect from 26th February, 2017, for a period of six (6) years ending 25th February 2023.
Chiri briefly left last year after former President Mr Robert Mugabe attempted to replace her with former Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) General manager Mr Mike Ndudzo who was rejected by Parliament.
