Mavima dissolves Nssa board
LABOUR minister Paul Mavima has dissolved the National Social Security Authority (Nssa) board less than two years after it was appointed by his predecessor Sekai Nzenza.
In a statement yesterday, Mavima said the Cuthbert Chidoori-chaired board would be replaced within three months.
“Nssa is currently engaged in a strategic reorganisation and restructuring exercise which has been necessitated by the need to respond to emerging issues in the world and align its mandate with the national development agenda. Accordingly, the Nssa board has been dissolved with immediate effect to pave way for this transformation.
“The ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare wishes to express its most sincere gratitude to members of the outgoing board for their contribution to Nssa during their term of office. In the meantime, a three-member interim board will oversee the administration of the authority while a substantive board will be constituted within three months,” Mavima said in the statement.
The Nssa board was appointed in February 2019.
The other board members who were shown the exit include Priscilla Mujuru, a lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe, Mfaro Moyo, Zimbabwe Confederation of Public Sector Trade Unions (ZCPSTU) chairperson Cecilia Alexander, lawyer Arthur Manase and Farai Tichawangana — a chartered accountant and finance director at Zesa Holdings.
