Stroke: Zimbabwe Tourism Authority CEO Karikoga Kaseke


Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) chief executive officer Karikoga Kaseke suffered a stroke early morning yesterday according to a reliable eTN source.

Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) chief executive officer Karikoga Kaseke suffered a stroke early morning yesterday according to a reliable eTN source.

Sources said a disoriented Kaseke was initially admitted at the Corporate 24 Medical Centre with significantly impaired communication. He remains ill and has been transferred to the Borrowdale Trauma Centre.

Recently eTN reported, the ZTA chief executive officer will be leaving the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority. He had run ZTA for 13 years.

Kaseke has been known to be very vocal. Two weeks ago business came to a standstill at a Harare hotel yesterday after Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) chief executive officer Karikoga Kaseke was told that a less-than-400ml glass of orange juice had outrageously spiked to $10.

The Daily News crew was at the hotel conducting other business when Kaseke had a run-in with hotel staff and was subsequently offered the glass of the same juice for $5 because of his “status.”

Kaseke declined the offer demanding to see the general manager who arrived at the scene only to insist “sir, the price is $10, it’s freshly squeezed juice.”

After the overthrow of the recent government, Kaseke managed to maintain his job at ZTA, but became a vocal force in speaking out strongly against former Minister of Tourism Walter Mzembi. He was one of Mzembi’s top advisors and became one of the top advisors of the current minister Priscah Mupfumira after the regime change. This may have enabled him to maintain his position he now decided to leave for another public servant position within the Zimbabwe government.
