Deputising Professor Matarira is Mr Enock Moyo a sales and marketing expert while the hospital’s chief executive officer Dr Enock Maida was made an ex-officio member.
Mr Lameck Chibvingodze and Mrs Patricia Mutetwa were made members of the board. Officially unveiling the new board at Chitungwiza Central Hospital yesterday, Dr Moyo implored them to shun corruption.
The Minister tasked the board to employ innovative strategies to avoid micro-management from Government.
“President Mnangagwa is on record shunning corruption. Corruption, corruption has no room in the Second Republic. You must make sure that everything you do is above board from staff recruitments to everything.
“Government does not want loafers, but hard workers. We want people who think outside the box, away from the box and innovative cadres. We don’t want to come from head office to manage you here,” said Dr Moyo.
Speaking after the board’s appointment, Prof Matarira promised to maintain if not surpass the standards set by the then CEO of the Hospital now the Health Minister.
She said her board was also ready to lead in the establishment of super specialist hospitals, which Government looks forward to have.
“I want to say we are blessed to come in after the Minister left an indelible mark here. This is also a challenge to us to keep on the status which Dr Moyo worked so hard to achieve.
“We will not disappoint in our new roles and with the support of all the staff here, we want to be part of the team that will help in the construction of the new super specialist hospital here,” said Prof Matarira.
