PAP Member Rwodzi sworn in as Deputy Minister

A member of Zimbabwe’s delegation to the Pan African Parliament (PAP), Hon. Barbara Rwodzi has been sworn in as Deputy Minister of Environment, Climate Change, Tourism, and Hospitality Industry by President Mnangagwa at the State House, Harare on Friday.

With her swearing in as a deputy minister, Rwodzi ceases to be a member of Zimbabwe’s delegation to the Pan African Parliament.

Rwodzi will be remembered for her role during the Fourth Ordinary Session of the Fifth Parliament of the PAP, held in May/June in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she teamed up with Namibia's McHenry Venaani, South Africa's Julius Malema to prevent the election of the new president to take place due to failure to implement rotational presidency of the parliament.

After almost two days of chaos, including physical confrontations, outbursts, and disruptions, the AUC Chairperson directed the indefinite suspension of the session.

Hon. Rwodzi was the Southern Region Caucus Campaign Coordinator of the team that attended the 39th Session of the AU Executive Council where a decision to apply the principle of rotation to the Pan African Parliament’s presidency which will provide all the regions an equal opportunity to lead the parliament was taken.

A holder of Master of Business Administration degree and an honours degree in Business Studies, Rwodzi is a successful businesswoman who owns a number of companies with interests in energy solutions, financial services, clothing and community development projects.
