Incoming Minister Of ICT, Kazembe Kazembe Is Better Than Supa Mandiwanzira: Agreed?


Kazembe Kazembe career has taken a new trajectory that saw him being appointed the Minister of Ministry of Information and Communications Technology and Cyber Security, thus displacing Supa Mandiwanzira. Whilst Supa’s career started off being a well-renowned journalist, Mr. Kazembe Kazembe’s career started off being a school teacher.

However, of the two, Mr. Kazembe seem to be more qualified for this job than his predecessor and I believe that makes him a good appointment by President Mnangagwa. His educational background and work experience altogether mold him into a technocrat. Yet, making good policies or being a competent minister requires more than technical expertise or knowledge. To deliver he not only will need to use his knowledge but will have to be politically capacitated by the President to institute whatever reforms or policies.

Anyway, let’s take a look at Mr. Kazembe Kazembe’s background;
