ZAKA – Victor Zinanga, who has been Zaka's assistant District Administrator (DA), has been elevated to be acting DA replacing Tapson Chivanga who was transferred to Mvuma.
Busangabanye Malozana, who is the district's public service inspector, announced the new order in a recent full council meeting.
Chivanga had, however, appointed Charles Jerera, Zaka's Cultural and Heritage officer as the acting DA, a move that seems to confirm long-held suspicions that there was bad blood between Chivanga and his assistants Zinanga and Gift Machukele, the reason why he overlooked them and appointed Jerera – a junior to the two.
Zinanga has served as the assistant DA for some time, a position he held until his elevation to the acting DA.
Chivanga, who had served in the district for the past five years, bade farewell to Zaka at a party held at Zuma lodge in Zaka a few weeks ago.news
