Government of Zimbabwe has conveyed heartfelt condolences to the Guranungo family on the sad passing of Deputy Director International Communication Services in the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Ms Millicent Dengwani.

Ms Dengwani (38) who had been unwell for some time died yesterday morning. She served in different portfolios with distinction before becoming a Deputy Director.

In a statement, Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Monica Mutsvangwa said Ms Dengwani’s distinguished service to the Ministry and country will be cherished for a long time to come.

“Ms Dengwani started off as a District Information Officer in the Rural Communications Directorate in September 2010 and in February 2014 was reassigned to the International Communications Directorate, where she served with distinction as an Information Officer until February 2021. On the 1st March 2021 she was promoted to the position of Deputy Director and served in that capacity until the time of her death,” said the Minister.

“She was instrumental in the development of background papers on bilateral and multilateral issues, most recently on Zimbabwe and Botswana. She was also an accomplished speech writer and researcher.”

“Ms Dengwani was also responsible for the facilitation of media and publicity requirements for State visits by foreign Heads of State and Government and accreditation of foreign journalists and had the ability to engage with international journalists from diverse backgrounds. During her tenure, the quality of work from her directorate markedly improved, while turnaround time for assignments was reduced. We draw solace from the fact that her distinguished service to the Ministry and country will be cherished for a long time to come,” said Minister Mutsvangwa.

“I extend my heartfelt condolences to her husband and children who have lost a loving wife and mother. May they find comfort in the knowledge that we join them in mourning during this difficult time,” she said.

Ms Dengwani is survived by a husband and two children.
