Share

ZIMBABWEAN President Robert Mugabe on Monday evening recycled same old ministers in a development the entire nations condemned as a cabinet of "clueless" ministers. In interviews soon after the swearing in ceremony at state house the newly appointed ministers said the vision is there from the visionary President Mugabe and what is left for them is to ensure it sees the light of day through different programmes and projects.

Among those reassigned were former Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa who will now head the new Cyber Security, Threat Detection and Mitigation Ministry, and former Tourism Minister Walter Mzembi who has now assumed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The changes were announced as Chinamasa and Mupfumira were reportedly out of the country on government business.

An angry Grace Mugabe departed from a prepared speech at an event in Harare to attack Mr Mnangagwa.

The reshuffle also removed control of the justice ministry from Mnangagwa and assigned other key posts to supporters of a faction that is linked to Mugabe.

"Ministers to the new cabinet should also ensure that their loyalty is exclusively to their appointing authority, who is none other than President Mugabe".

"It was a role that placed him at the centre of government, giving the appearance that he was more powerful compared to his counterpart (Phelekezela Mphoko)".

President Mugabe and his wife took issue with claims that the VP had eaten poisoned ice cream from their family dairy and they have been complaining in public that Mr Mnangagwa did not try to distance himself from the allegations.
