In the absence of a Director General since last March, the State is leaning more towards the recruitment of a “recovery manager”. The water and electricity company no longer has an official leader since Rivo Radanielina left for other lands. Yesterday’s Council of Ministers announced that a “manager” is in the process of being recruited. “…Faced with the current crisis experienced by Jirama, the Council of Ministers gives the green light to finalize the recruitment of a Jirama recovery specialist…” informs the press release from the Council of Ministers. The process began in April and recruitment is international in scope. A recruitment firm launched the international recruitment notice which ended on May 24th. Nineteen candidates would have applied for this strategic position and only five of them are of Malagasy nationality. Six of the candidates have gone through the final stages but only two names will go through the final interview and will be proposed to the Council of Ministers in the near future. Both candidates will have to present a clear turnaround plan and will have to demonstrate strong leadership and management capabilities. The press release acknowledges that taking office is urgent because “should we put an end to the long cuts and load shedding that make the Malagasy population suffer…”.
