Midlands Aids Service Organisation (MASO) has elected new board members to run the affairs of the organization for the next three years, at an Annual general election held last Friday.
Dr Victor Wasara is now the new chairperson, deputized by veteran journalists Willie Mponda as the Vice Chairperson, Violet Magodo was voted Treasure while Clr Edson Kurebwaseka and Kate Shumba were selected for Committee members’ posts. Mr Kutendaishe Manika will be the organization’s legal Advisor and Veronica Nhemachena the Chief Executive Officer will be part of the new board.
The 31st AGM was held on the 13th of May 2022, at MASO premises, in Gweru.
Dr Wasara said that he is honored to be entrusted with the position, and looks forward to steering the board through this challenging period of COVID-19.
The vice chairperson Mponda said he will work tirelessly and diligently in order for MASO to continue propelling to greater heights through youth participation and involvement in the fight against HIV/Aids, especially during this time of Covid 19 measures.
Maso has since submitted papers for re-registration of the organization as Multi-AID Support Organisation to strategically remain relevant as the global vision is moving toward ending AIDS by 2030. The registration will widen the geographical coverage to national coverage, diversifying interventions.
