    Ruparanganda appointed CTC director


    MASVINGO- Career economist, Ellen Ruparanganda has been appointed director for Competition and Tariffs Commission (CTC) with effect from July this year she replaces Alexander Kubuda who left the Commission in 2014.
    CTC is a statutory board which was established in 2001 through an Act of Parliament to implement and enforce competition policy and law as well as execute the country's trade tariffs.
    "My main mandate is to lead and guide the Commission in the field of competition and trade tariffs in the economy of Zimbabwe.
    "The position also makes me think outside the box as well as balancing the interests of different stakeholders like in this case abattoirs and farmers," said the soft spoken Ruparanganda in an interview with The Mirror on the sidelines of the validation workshop on the study of the Zimbabwe beef sector held at Flamboyant Hotel in Masvingo recently.
    Ruparanganda was born in Chiredzi where her parents worked and she is the first born in a family of five, two girls and three boys.
    She went to Dunuza Primary in Triangle from grade1 to 7 and from form 1 to 6 she went to Nagle House in Marondera in Mashonaland East Province.
    In 1985 she enrolled for a Bachelor of Science Honours in Economics with the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) and graduated in 1987 upon which she joined the Ministry of Finance as an economist.
    In 1992 she obtained her Master of Business Administration degree from the UZ while still with the Ministry and in 2001 she joined the State Procurement Board then known as the Tender Board as an economic planning officer and chief economic analyst. In 2005 she left to join the Ministry of Economic Planning and Development as a senior economist and rose to the position of chief economist, domestic and international finance.
    In 2007 she left the civil service and joined CTC as assistant director for Tariffs and has been acting director since  2014 until the time of her appointment in July.
    "My wish is to see women applying for higher positions in the corporate world in the SADC region because I believe women are equally capable of excelling," she said.
    Ruparanganda has one child.
