Gono's advisor leaves central bank

Advisor to the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor Dr Munyaradzi Kereke has left the central bank after an eight-year stint.

Announcing his departure yesterday, RBZ Governor Dr Gideon Gono said Dr Kereke had been reassigned to take charge of "broader responsibilities in other spheres of national service".

It was not immediately clear as of last night which organisation he was headed to.

In a statement, Dr Gono commended Dr Kereke's service to the central bank over the past eight years and during 1997 up to 2001 when he was employed at the apex bank.

"During both periods of national service, Dr Kereke exhibited extremely high levels of commitment to national causes, dedication to duty, innovative thinking, and commitment to his work, particularly during the most trying times for the bank, the financial sector, the economy and the nation at large.

"It is these characteristics which have earned him favourable consideration in respect of the pending reassignment and as Governor and the bank, we will sadly miss his intimate services though on a broader scale, we may continue to interact wearing different hats," said Dr Gono.

When contacted for comment, Dr Kereke said: "The matter at hand has been sufficiently covered in the Governor's Press statement.

"With the heavens smiling at us with good rains, let's look to a brighter 2012 and beyond."

Dr Kereke, a successful tobacco farmer who scooped the TSL 2011-tobacco grower of the year, has business interests in the medical sector through Rock Foundation Medical Centre in Mt Pleasant and Green Card Medical Aid Society among other ventures.
