Dear Colleagues and Stakeholders,
Following the December 2021 Board of Commissioners resolution to retire Dr Tafataona P. Mahoso in early 2022 because he would have reached pensionable age, we hereby congratulate Mr. Academy Bvumayi Chinamhora for being appointed the ZMC Acting Secretary with effect from 1st April 2022.
The ZMC Secretary reports to and services the Board in addition to being in charge of the ZMC Operations, including actively engaging in pertinent issues affecting the ZMC’s Constitutional mandate and helping find solutions.
Mr. Academy Bvumayi Chinamhora is the current ZMC Manager responsible for Research, Training and Development, a position he has held since 2012.
He holds an undergraduate degree in Politics and Administration from the University of Zimbabwe that he obtained in 1987. Further, he also obtained a Master’s Degree in International Relations. Mr. Chinamhora has worked in Information, Posts and Telecommunications from 1992 to 2002 after which he joined the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe. He joined the then MIC in 2006 which transformed into ZMC in 2009 as a Constitutional body upholding Constitutionalism and democracy through the media.
We look forward to working well with Mr Chinamhora in his role.
