HARARE – The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) commissioner general Faith Mazani has resigned from the tax collector effective early next year and is expected to rejoin the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
This was revealed in a special circular from the Zimra board of directors.
“We wish to advise all staff members that the Commissioner General, Faith Mazani will be leaving the Authority with effect from 31 January 2021,” said Zimra board vice chairperson Josephine Matambo in the special circular.
“The ZIMRA Board of Directors congratulates Faith Mazani for her pending reappointment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) with effect from 01 February 2021,” Matambo added.
Before joining Zimra, Mazani was the regional revenue administration advisor for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Regional Technical Assistance Center (RTAC) for West Africa, based in Ghana (AFRITAC West 2).
Matambo said Mazani was instrumental in successfully leading the Authority in the implementation of its strategy, which supported key pillars of the National Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP).
Under the leadership of Mazani, ZIMRA managed to consistently surpass revenue targets set by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development.
Matambo said Zimra looks forward to work with Mazani at IMF to “strengthening Domestic Resource Mobilisation in Zimbabwe.”
Mazani took over from Gesham Pasi in February 2018.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Studies from the University of Zimbabwe and a Masters’ in Economics – Public Policy and Taxation from the Yokohama National University in Japan.-Financial Express.
