THE Depot Manager for GMB Karoi, Mrs Patricia Tawanda Kavhayi was recently appointed a councilor for the Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT) by the President and Chancellor of State Universities, His Excellency, Cde Robert Mugabe. The appointments were made public in the various media by the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development recently and Dura News could not help but identify a familiar name in the form of Mrs Kavhayi.
When contacted by Dura News, the Depot Manager confirmed the good news but remained modest. “It is the Lord's doing, that is all I can say for now. To be honest I was probably equally surprised like you when I was notified of this appointment,” she said. However, GMB's Human Resources Manager, Mrs Aquinata Makuvise said she was not surprised by Mrs Kavhai's appointment in the council of CUT. “As GMB we are proud of our own who has done it in the education circles.
As you are aware Patricia is one of our senior class one depot managers who has always proved beyond reasonable doubt that indeed she can make a positive contribution not only to GMB but the nation at large,” she said. A council is the supreme governing body of a university. Its main function is to provide a general policy direction in the running of the institution.
It has the ultimate responsibility to ensure that the University's mission and objectives are realized. Mrs Kavhai joined GMB on 22 March 2004 as Depot Assistant. She was then promoted to Depot Manager Class 3 on 07 November 2005, Depot Manager Class 2 and now Depot Manager Class 1 since 01 May 2011.
