The Commonwealth University in collaboration with London Graduate School has conferred on the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) Chief Executive, Mr. Karigoka Kaseke, Honorary Doctorate in Public Administration.
This is in recognition of Kaseke’s exceptional contribution to tourism in Zimbabwe, Africa and the world. The convocation ceremony was held recently in Dubai (UAE).
The institution noted that: “The Honorary Doctorate Degree Award of the Commonwealth is a unique award that is especially reserved for personalities who have distinguished themselves in society through service, selflessness and other outstanding contributions through which the lives of many have been touched positively.”
Kaseke said: “I was actually surprised that some people, far away from the theatre of my work, recognised the good work I am doing. I did not know of the Commonwealth University although I have heard something about the London Graduate School.
“I am excited and humbled to be the one to be conferred with this Doctorate. I believe they saw something exceptionally good about the way I work in promoting the brand, Zimbabwe A world of Wonders,” he said.
Kaseke has served as CE of ZTA for over a decade with his name associated to the many strides that tourism in the country has recorded over the years. He is highly respected for dramatically transforming ZTA to a vibrant, strategy focused and results driven national tourism body. Kaseke is a Board member of the WHO’S WHO Advisory Board, an honour bestowed to only a few elite members of the who’s who historical society.
