The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) has announced the early retirement of Mr Rameck Masaire who was the Acting Commissioner-General since February last year.
Mr Masaire tendered his retirement notice on December 30, 2021 and the retirement is with effect from February 1, 2022.
He rejoined ZIMRA as the Commissioner Domestic Taxes on September 1, 2018, from Ernst & Young.
He served in that role until February 1, 2021, when he was appointed Acting Commissioner-General, the role he has been executing until his retirement notice.
In a notice, ZIMRA board vice chairperson Mrs Josephine Matambo thanked Mr Masaire for his contribution to the tax collector saying that a number of notable achievements have been recorded during his tenure.
“With his vast tax knowledge and experience, he has provided valuable leadership to the organisation and the team that he has been working with over the years,” said the ZIMRA board vice chairperson.
Mr Masaire leaves Zimra in a sound position as the tax collector has managed to surpass the net revenue targets for 2021 despite the disruptions caused by the Covid-19-induced lockdowns.
Meanwhile, the ZIMRA board has announced the appointment of board Member, Dr Moris Bekezela Mpofu, as Acting Commissioner-General with effect from January 1, 2022, until April 30, 2022.
“In the same breath, on behalf of the board, I announce the appointment of board member, Dr Moris Mpofu, as Acting Commissioner-General with effect from January 1, 2022 until April 30, 2022 with the hope that within that time the processes of recruiting a substantive Commissioner-General would have been finalised,” announced Mrs Matambo.
