Permanant secretary for information Nick Mangwana has defended the appointment of President Kembo Mohadi’s daughter, Abigail, as a Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) commissioner.
Writing on Twitter, Mangwana Mohadi’s daughter has a right to serve the nation just like anyone else.
Abigail Millicent Ambrose’s appointment yesterday raised questions on the election body’s impartiality and independence.
“Children and relatives of high-profile people have the right to employment and service to their country as everyone else. That’s why it is called, “equal opportunities,” Mangwana said.
