Zama Mkosi has resigned as CEO of the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) with immediate effect. Her resignation letter was submitted to the chairperson of council on 27 May 2018. The council accepted the resignation and thanked Mkosi for the contribution she has made to the NFVF and the film industry during her tenure.
In the interest of organisational stability, the council has appointed Shadrack Bokaba as acting CEO, until a new appointment is made. Bokaba is a member of council, serving on its HR and audit committees. Council will embark on a process to recruit a new CEO.
The NFVF also announces the appointment of Joy Mawela as the head of Industry Development, Training and Marketing effective 1 June 2018, and Mbali Buthelezi as the chief financial officer, effective 1 July 2018.
In the meanwhile, the council has commenced implementation of the findings of the forensic report that was commissioned by the minister of Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa, with regard to the various allegations of impropriety at the NFVF. Equally important to the council is the desire to improve staff morale and brand reputation of the NFVF, amidst all the negative publicity that has engulfed the NFVF in the past.
