The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) board of directors has retired the tourism promotion body’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Karikoga Kaseke on medical grounds. This was announced today by the ZTA acting board chairperson, Dr. Precious Sibiya in a statement today.

“Dr. Kaseke fell ill in November 2018 and has not been well since then. His retirement followed the recommendations of a medical board and is effective 1 July 2021,” said Dr. Sibiya.

Dr. Kaseke who joined the ZTA from the then Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) in 2005, ran the authority until November 2018.

“Dr. Kaseke served the organisation as its Chief Executive from June 2005…until his retirement. The board and, indeed, everyone had hoped for his recovery and we continue to pray for the restoration of his health,” the ZTA chairperson said.

Dr. Kaseke’s departure will enable the ZTA to headhunt for his replacement. ZTA Chief Operating Officer, Givemore Chidzidzi has been the acting Chief Executive officer of the authority.

The ZTA promotes tourism and runs Zimbabwe’s annual international tourism showcase, the Sanganayi/Hlanganani World Tourism Expo, which is normally held in September in Bulawayo.

The tourism promotion body also markets Zimbabwe as a business tourism destination and oversees Zimbabwe’s meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibition (MICE) industry through the Zimbabwe National Convention Bureau (ZNCB).
