Dr. Bekithemba Gumbo replaced Dr Paul Taylor as the new Director of Cap-Net.
Themba holds a PhD in water and sanitation and is a national from Zimbabwe. He comes to Cap-Net with a solid experience in capacity development in water resources management – in his own words he is ‘a natural capacity builder’. But Themba also brings valuable hands-on experience, including a four year period as water and sewerage engineer for the City of Bulawayo.
He has experience of Cap-Net from when he managed the WaterNet network. In his most recent assignment Dr Gumbo held the position of Project Manager for a Southern Africa Development Community regional water demand management programme being implemented by the Development Bank of Southern Africa.
We welcome Themba and look forward to this new phase of the project.
