Nicholas Moyo, the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe’s deputy director is tipped to take over from Elvas Mari who resigned as the director of the arts regulatory body.

Moyo who has been deputizing Mari is seen as a natural successor due to his long experience with the NACZ.

Sources told Gem Nation News that Moyo was the man for the job which fell vacant after Mari resigned last month.

“There is no better candidate for the post other than Nicholas Moyo. He has been there for long,” said a source.

However, Moyo could not deny or confirm the reports as he was not reachable.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Musician Union hailed Mari for his assistance within the union.

“At the inception of the Zimbabwe Musician Union (ZIMU), we received a lot of support and guidance from Mr Elvis Mari as head of the National Arts Council.

“The support we received was such profound and invaluable without it, there would have been inordinate delays in the legal formation of the ZIMU. Worse still, the Union could have experienced a still birth.

“ZIMU wishes Mr Mari all the best in his future endeavours and to keep at his heart, as he has done in the past, the arts as a passion,” a statement read.

Last month, the Board of the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe announced Mari’s resignation from his position as director with effect from the 16th of March 2018.

Mari had served the NACZ with distinction for the past 16 years.

Mari had held senior positions in the NACZ since he joined the organization in January 2002, when he was appointed as the Assistant Director for Arts Promotion and Development.

Mari was promoted to the position of Deputy Director in March 2005. Due to his leadership qualities in fostering development and promotion of arts and culture in Zimbabwe, he was elevated to the position of Director in November 2009, the position in which he served for eight years before tendered his resignation.
