Own Correspondent|THE National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) has with immediate effect parted ways with Commissioner Mrs Netty Musanhu over a long-standing matter of conflict of interest.
In a rather bitter statement yesterday, the commission said the conflict of interest issue has been in existence since Mrs Musanhu’s appointment to the commission in 2016.
Section 236(2) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe states that: “Persons who are members of a political party or organisation on their appointment to an independent Commission must relinquish that membership without delay and in any event within thirty days of their appointment.”
Prior to her appointment to NPRC, Mrs Musanhu was as the Executive Director of Musasa Project, an organisation that works to protect and capacitate women who are victims of violence.
At the NPRC, she was in charge of the Victim Support, Gender and Diversity thematic area and Resource Mobilisation Role.
The commission did not reveal what was the outstanding conflict of interest issue that has forced Mrs Musanhu out of NPRC.
