John Panonetsa Mangudya (born 5 October 1963)[1] is the governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.[2][3] He was appointed in March 2014 by the Zimbabwean president and began his tenure as on 1 May that year.[4] He succeeded Dr Gideon Gono as the governor of Zimbabwe's central bank and became the nation's 6th substantial exchequer.

Education[edit]

Mangudya earned bachelor's and master's degree in economics from the University of Zimbabwe, where he won several book prizes for his academic achievements. He also has a PhD in Economics from Washington International University.[5] His PhD qualification however, has been questioned by critics who have noted that it was obtained from an unaccredited institution in the United States.[6][7]
