Prominent journalist Hopewell Chin’ono reports that the United States Senate has confirmed Pamela Marie Tremont as the new American ambassador to Zimbabwe in a Senate vote.

The United States has not had an ambassador since 2021, when its previous ambassador, Brian Nichols, left to become Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs.

Pamela Tremont has previously served as Deputy Ambassador of the United States in Sweden, Ukraine, and Cyprus.

Pamela Tremont holds Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from Baylor University, as well as a master’s degree from the Dwight D. Eisenhower School at the National Defense University.
