President Mnangagwa appoints new deputy Minister


Harare (New Ziana) – President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday appointed businesswoman Barbra Rwodzi as Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry deputy Minister.
Chief secretary to the Office of the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda announced the appointment in a statement.
Dr Sibanda said the appointment was made in terms of section 104 (02) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe and was with immediate effect.
Rwodzi is a Zanu PF Member of Parliament for Chirumanzu constituency, in the Midlands province.
“Hon Rwodzi is a holder of a Masters Business Administration Degree and Bachelor of Honours Degree in Business Studies. She is a successful businesswoman who owns a number of companies with interests in energy solutions, financial services, clothing and community development projects,” Dr Sibanda said.
“The appointment is with immediate effect.”
Rwodzi, who recently made headlines at a Pan African Parliament (PAP) meeting in South Africa when she led a protest against Franco-phone countries who wanted to cling to power at the Pan African Parliament, will deputise Mangaliso Ndlovu.
Rwodzi was backing Chief Fortune Charumbira for the PAP presidency against a Malian candidate who was being backed by West African countries.
South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julias Malema supported Rwodzi in arguing that power should rotate and not be a preserve of Francophone countries and they successfully blocked the vote.
