President Emmerson Mnangagwa has commiserated with the family of Public Service Commission (PSC) Chairperson Dr Mariyawanda Nzuwah, following the death of the retired career civil servant.

Dr Nzuwah died on Tuesday at the age of 68.

President Mnangagwa described his death as a great blow to the Nation as we were robbed of a long-serving civil servant who was very dedicated and loyal to his country.

In his condolence message he wrote, “Dr Nzuwah was an eminent academic whose scholarly works were in nationalist research in support of the liberation struggle.

As a committed cadre, he placed his professional skills and career at the disposal of the struggle and his country soon after the attainment of our Independence,” said President Mnangagwa.

He went on to highlight notable achievements of the late PSC chairperson saying, “The late Dr Nzuwah will be remembered in the annuls of our Bureaucracy as the first indigenous person to Chair the PSC making him the longest serving member of the Commission to date.

He distinguished himself by ably superintending over the transformation of our Civil Service from a colonial bureaucracy serving minority interests to placing it at the service of the majority of our people in a post-Independent Zimbabwe,” said President Mnangagwa.
