Zimbabwe's Minister Of Broadcasting Services Challenges Transmedia Board
Monica Mutsvangwa, Zimbabwe's Minister of Information, Publicity, and Broadcasting Services has announced that the newly-appointed Transmedia Corporation Private Limited board is mandated to provide guidance and leadership that will transform the organisation and ensure that good corporate governance is adhered to.
Mutsvangwa made this statement while was addressing Transmedia board members in Harare recently.
She called for the need to build a healthy working relationship between the board and company executives and also added that the last board sitting at Transmedia was in 2014.
She said that this had compromised good corporate governance at the company and that the new board should quickly take action to fill the void.
Transmedia Corporation (PVT) Ltd is a state-owned company that was established to provide TV and radio signal distribution services for Zimbabwe's broadcasters in terms of the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Commercialisation Act of 2001. Almost all new broadcasters are operating on Transmedia infrastructure and investments are being made to widen capacity and coverage. The organisation is currently implementing Zimbabwe's TV Digitalisation project, which is expected to boost the quality of TV and radio coverage countrywide.
Dr Energy Mutodi, Zimbabwe's Deputy Minister of Information, Publicity, and Broadcasting Services, said that the board should add value to Transmedia and that failure is not an option.
Other board members include Clifford Mufiri, Pamela Machingambi, Raymond Takavarasha, Viola Zenenga, Dalick Marandure and Margaret Zhou.
