Mwilima Mushokobanji has been appointed the new Chief Executive Officer of the Meat Corporation of Namibia (Meatco) with effect from 01 February 2020.

Prior to his appointment, Mushokobanji served as the Executive Director at the Namibia National Farmers Union and was a former Meatco Board Member representing the communal farmers until his resignation on 29 November 2019.

Making the announcement at a media conference here today, Meatco Board Vice-Chairperson Ronald Kubas said Mushokobanji holds a Masters of Management in Governance and Public Leadership from Wits University and a Masters of Philosophy in Corporate strategy from the University of Pretoria.

He said Meatco was previously served by several executives within the organisation, who were acting as CEO on a rotational basis with the Executive of Finance, Human Resource, Information Technology and Administration, Angus Claassen being the one who have acted in that capacity of late.

All executive positions, Kubas said have now been filled and more so the strategic position of the CEO thus the organisation is now stable.
