Dewa Mavhinga bounces back as Crisis chairman

HARARE - Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition (CiZC) elected a new executive committee led by Dewa Mavhinga at an elective Annual General Meeting (AGM) held last Friday at Montgomery Gardens in Harare.

The new executive of Crisis ? a conglomeration of more than 350 civic society organisations ? will serve a two-year term until 2015.

Mavhinga, a senior researcher with the Africa Division at the Human Rights Watch (HRW), succeeds outgoing chairperson, Okay Machisa, the director of Zimbabwe Human Rights Association (Zimrights).

Meanwhile, Samukeliso Khumalo, the director of Women Institute for Leadership Development (WILD), will take over from Grace Chirenje, the director of Zimbabwe Young Women’s Network for Peace-building (ZYWNP), as the vice-chairperson. Mfundo Mlilo, the director of Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA), succeeds Thabani Nyoni, the director of Bulawayo Agenda (BA), as the new spokesperson.

McDonald Lewanika, Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition director, said: “We are happy that as a coalition we have lived up to our democratic traditions.

“The successful election of a new and able leadership fortifies our belief on renewal as part of democratisation and our struggles against longevity of individuals in power.
