Mpofu names new Caaz board

HARARE - Transport minister Obert Mpofu yesterday appointed a new board to spearhead the revival of the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (Caaz).

The board constitutes of Themba Nyoni, Pamela Maringire, Pax Nkomo, George Manyaya, Rosa Dube and Moosa Allana.

Mpofu implored the new board to work hard and grow Caaz in line with the government economic blueprint, the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (ZimAsset).

“As the incoming board, you therefore need to hasten to adopt the pace of the ministry by either strengthening or reviewing the organisation’s strategies to dovetail to those of the ministry in order to deliver on the ZimAsset,” he said.

Mpofu noted that the board should craft a corporate governance code for the parastatal to ensure transparency and accountability.

“As a regulatory authority, the board also needs to ensure effective control and regulation of the operations of aircrafts in and over Zimbabwe, provide air navigation services including air traffic control in Zimbabwe airspace and any areas outside Zimbabwe for which the authority, pursuant to international arrangements, is responsible for providing such services,” he said.

The new board is also expected to spearhead the unbundling of Caaz to create an airport operations company which will take effective charge of all aviation infrastructure, thereby enabling the Caaz to focus on its regulatory activities in line with international practices.
