Chisanga Heads ZDA

ZAMBIA’s renowned corporate governance consultant, Patrick Chisanga has been appointed as the new Zambia Development Agency (ZDA) director general with immediate effect.

Mr Chisenga, takes over from Andrew Chipwende who has been at the ZDA helm from the time the agency became operational in 2007.

This was after the amalgamation of five statutory bodies namely Zambia Investment Centre, Zambia Privatisation Agency, Export Board of Zambia, Small Enterprise Development and Zambia Export Processing Zones Authority.

In a statement obtained by Times of Zambia in Lusaka ZDA Board chairperson Songowayo Zyambo said Chipwende contributed greatly towards ensuring the successful amalgamation of five institutions into One Stop Shop Agency for all investors.

He said the Board was confident Mr Chisanga would transform the agency.

“Having spent over 30 years in the public and corporate sectors of Zambia, serving as chief executive, chairperson and aisor of many organisations and companies as well as his active involvement in Rotary International at global level where he now serves as chairperson of Rotary in Africa, the board has no doubt that Mr Chisanga is the right person to transform ZDA,” he said.
