The government’s penchant for making a host of bureaucratic appointments continues unabated with the latest appointment of 10 provincial development co-ordinators (PDCs) for each of the country’s 10 provinces.
The appointments were approved by President Emmerson Mnangagwa, with the PDCs expected to assist Ministers of State for Provincial Affairs with “technical and administrative support”.
The appointments of the PDCs are effective from September 1.
Justifying the appointments in a statement issued on Saturday, Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Misheck Sibanda said:
The PDCs are, therefore, critical technical actors in the formulation of provincial growth and transformation strategies that are aligned to National Development Plans and will enable Zimbabwe to realise its vision to become an upper-middle-income economy and society in 2030.
The PDCs are as follows:
- Paul Nyoni – Bulawayo
- Tafadzwa Muguti – Harare
- Abiot Marongwe – Midlands
- Tavabarira Kutamahufa – Mshonaland East
- Timothy Tigere – Mashonaland Central
- Josphat Jaji – Mashonaland West
- Jefter Sakupwanya – Masvingo
- Sithandiwe Ncube – Matabeleland North
- Latiso Dhlamini – Matabeleland South
