President Emmerson Mnangagwa has, with immediate effect, appointed Nomathemba Ndiweni-Masuku as a commissioner and deputy chairperson of the Public Service Commission (PSC).
Ndiweni-Masuku will deputise PSC chairman Vincent Hungwe.
Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Misheck Sibanda said the appointment was made in terms of section 202 (1)(a) of the Constitution read together with section 320(4) of the Constitution.
Ndiweni-Masuku holds several professional qualifications and has served on various boards including the Health Professions Authority of Zimbabwe, the Medical Research Council of Zimbabwe and the Zimbabwe Investment Authority. Sibanda said:
