“We are confident that with the CEO in place, ZOC will become a model national Olympic committee not just in Africa, but in the Olympic movement as a whole,” said Chingoka.

A seasoned sports administrator, Mutsauki was selected from a list of 22 applicants. He is a former president of the then Amateur Athletic Association of Zimbabwe and member of the Sports and Recreation Commission.
