Minister Mhona Defends Tshinga Dube's Appointment To The NRZ Board
Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Felix Mhona has defended the appointment of Retired Colonel Tshinga Dube (81) to the National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) board.
Political analyst, Rashweat Mukundu, among other commentators, said the appointment was testimony that the country’s leadership does not understand what is required to revive the “struggling” parastatal.
However, addressing journalists at a traffic safety indaba in Harare on Thursday, Mhona said Dube was ideal for the post following his long experience in corporate affairs.
Mhona added that those criticising Dube’s appointment were failing to consider the positives that he is set to bring into the NRZ boardroom. He said:
It is surprising that some people from outside the country are concerned with his appointment while overlooking what he is bringing to the organisation.
