Ingwebu appoints new board chairperson Mr Thandaza Masiye-Moyo

BULAWAYO lawyer Mr Thandaza Masiye-Moyo has been appointed as the substantive board chairperson for the Bulawayo City Council-owned Bulawayo Municipal Commercial Undertaking (BMCU).

BMCU runs Ingwebu Breweries and council operated farms in the city. Mr Masiye-Moyo takes over from Mr Concern Joshua Sibanda whose term of office expired on 31 December last year. Before his appointment, Mr Masiye-Moyo was the board’s deputy chairperson.

According to a confidential council report, Mr Masiye-Moyo had previously been seconded to be the acting chairperson while the local authority looked for a substantive board chairperson.

As part of the process of his appointment as the acting chairperson, Mr Masiye-Moyo reportedly had a one on one meeting with the city’s Town Clerk, Mr Christopher Dube, where it was later recommended that he be elevated to be the substantive board chairperson.

“The meeting yielded very positive results in that Mr Thandaza Masiye-Moyo proved himself as worthwhile to chair the Ingwebu Breweries board as he displayed enthusiasm and passion to take Ingwebu Breweries forward. He possessed the required skills and professionalism to be appointed substantively.

His current term of office as board member for Ingwebu Breweries was set to expire on 2 October 2022,” reads the report.

In the ensuing debate, councillors had mixed feelings regarding the appointment especially regarding the fact that already Mr Masiye-Moyo’s term was also about to expire.

“Councillor Rodney Jele observed that the sentiments raised by the councillors were indistinguishable. He highlighted that there was no difference between substantively appointing Mr Thandaza Masiye-Moyo as the board chairperson and having him continue acting in that position till his term expired.

He further suggested that he be appointed as the substantive board chairperson pending the expiry of his term because council would eventually have to permanently appoint a board chairperson after his term ended,” reads part of the council report.
