Tutu Fellow Jacqueline Muna Musiitwa will be serving on the board of Zambia's Central Bank.  The Bank of Zambia is tasked with among other things ensuring  appropriate monetary policy formulation and implementation, acting as the fiscal agent of the Government, and licensing, regulating and supervising banks and financial service institutions.
