PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday appointed a 22-member Cabinet in a move that saw some line ministries with functional duplications being merged.

Pin It
  • Chamunorwa

    It is still an exceedingly bloated cabinet. The same deadwood has been recycled and we can do without ministers of state.

    • Haranga

      Imagine if ED had dropped deputy ministers, provincial ministers and limited cabinet to not more than 15.

      • RejectedStone, Cornerstone

        that would have been a clear message.

    • Duke-General Hacha

      Pana Dokora ndipo vakanya madhokororo chaiwo

      • kuchadziya

        why?

    • Loud Speaker

      At least that useless minister of Agriculture who famously said ..Bumper harvests..I see it from the helicopter doesn’t feature..(his name escapes me)

  • Dr Gregory House

    Zeeeerrroòoooooooo

    Vakawandisa, no deliverables! President makanya. Ndirimusupporter asi cabinet iyi ma1

    • Gabarinocheka

      Cabinet yakatodhakwa kutaura chokwadi i agree with you. Dokora handione chaadzokera nepa foreign affairs……… A big doubt.

      • kuchadziya

        Foreign Affairs – do you know his potential. Why dont you wait and see.

        • General Nundo

          lack of experience

          • sarah Mahoka

            what experience. This is a soldier and they deal with international relations. Zimbabweans soldiers are always doing peace keeping in other countries . Do you know what experience he has. Zimbabweans will critic even what they do not know. a sign of ignorance. Hamnds off you do not know hi

      • sarah Mahoka

        Do you know What Major genaral Sibusiso Moyo’s Phd is in for you to judge him before he has performed? I am thinking international relations. The army has some of the most educated people . musangosvora. the world over generals end up heading ministrys. Collin Powell became the foreign affairs minister for the USA and a damn good one

    • Gabarinocheka

      Cabinet yakatodhakwa kutaura chokwadi.

  • Moe_Scyslack2

    Maiwe zvangu. Inga munopururudzira n’anga neinobata mai? This is a useless cabinet. Same tired faces whose specialty is kleptocracy. I’m hugely disappointed. Mpofu, Dokora? Are you kidding me?

    • Masaisai

      For the first time I completely agree with you. Totally!!! Matemadanda? Mutsvangwa survives on whisky, breakfast, lunch and dinner! Hungwe? I thought Bonyongwe would retain the justice ministry. He strikes me as a very level headed man for that post. This is a boozers’ cabinet. Absolute rubbish!

      • kuchadziya

        Until we know our dark side, we will never change. We will continue to criticise anything that we see or hear. It becomes part of we and a horrible one I guess that continues to haunt us throughout our lives.

    • General Nundo

      why giving Mutsvagwa and wife posts? corporate governance

  • malchan

    So who are they?

  • Patriot

    Ministry of Defence is written Ministry of Defence and Security . Does it mean security services , that is police and prisons/corrections are now under one ministry with army or its just a name.

    • Tafadzwa zete

      Defence and security means army and CIO. Police is under Home Affairs

    • Dickson Bandera

      ………and prisons under ministry of justice

  • tylerthecreator

    Makanya apa Mr President.. this cabinet is just rubbish. Since u claim to be a servant of the people, try to listen when people tell u not to appoint certain individuals. Marwadzisa nyika President..

  • Samanyika

    This very very sad. Haaaa, deadwood recycled again. Vanhu ava vakubhowa mhani.
    Garwe razviruma. Am disappointed….

    • Abby Mhene

      am disappointed at the representation of women in the new cabinet, what happened to the 50/50 representation Mr, President

      • Fred Moyo

        give us the women!

  • Brian Mandihlare

    tarisiro yaramba. zvakaoma izvi Dokora zvakare kufundo?

  • dead

    dead wood. Nothing new here. Regai tione. Pamwe zvichachinja but I doubt.

  • Gustav

    Am happy so far but why Mr Dokora?
    Anyway I still trust your judgement.
    Hope it won’t be in vain Mr President

  • Tafadzwa zete

    Mnangagwa has just replaced Mugabe loyalists with his own people.
    But. Let’s commend the fact that only 6 deputies have been appointed.
    And also that there are 3 completely new entrants who have no previous known political or military connection have been included. These being Prof Murwira, Prof Nyathi and Winston Chitando.

  • Abby Mhene

    I was looking forward to a cabinet that is representative!!!!! refer to
    the various international instruments Mr. President where gender parity
    is enshrined

  • Zarura Zimbabgwe

    Hopelessly, hopless! GIGO if you ask me or U(ungraded!)

  • Collin

    Ko Dokora, Supa na Mpofu varikutsvagei apo? Ko Air Marshal asi vasiya zvemawuto kani? Haa hapana zvaitwa apa, shame stereki

  • Kitsiyatotata

    Mugabe 2.0. or even worse. We are going nowhere. This cabinet is still bloated. Same clueless and corrupt faces. Again the President missed the point….and the point is politics should not be a source of employment for his friends. Only a free and fair election will solve our problems. This time there won’t be any 2008 because everybody is watching.

  • Haranga

    Kkkkkk. Breaking with the past is never an easy thing. The President chose to please those who fought his war, the army, and Chinamasa’s mantra of Zanu pf only. It’s back to square one as they say. HE chose Zanu pf’s trusted and failed. Johnso and Tyson, inspite of their abrasive characters are starting to look like hard workers of another level. The only change in this cabinet is that Mugabe is not there.

    Believe me the opposition is relieved, the bar has been set really low.

    • JAMES GUNIKE

      Back to square one or back to minus 74 years?

  • Gandanga

    Two ministers and a Minister of State per province is a fair number. It can’t get any better. Concerned on Minister of State for Monitoring Government Programmes which should be the President’s role assisted by his VP(s) and Minister of State for Government Scholarships which can be managed in Higher Education ministry. Culture refers to our norms and values and these can only be learned and socialised at Basic Education level rather than enforced which being paired with Home Affairs seems to suggest. Agriculture is now fully under Command from Minister to Deputy maybe signaling the serious campaign on it. Next level is to ensure all State Enterprises & Parastatals have fully functional boards and substantive CEOs approved by parliament or the parliamentary committee responsible as they have previously been used to milk public funds through lax corporate governance structures.

  • Veewajena

    Best regards . Panoti task ne teacher- ppl ratio mazino .

  • Ache

    Old wine in new skins l don’t see it working

  • Prince Ruregerero

    Section 104.3 allows for the appointment of only 5 ministers and deputy ministers from outside parliament. Murwira, Nyati, Chris Mutsvangwa, Shiri, SB Moyo and Chitando plus Matemadanda, Togarepi and Malinga. This makes a total of 9. What does the president have up his sleeve?

    • Wellington

      vachapihwa masenatorial seats hanty they were members who were fired from the party they will be replaced easily, they are also vacant MP seats they will be filled by those

  • JongweRachembera

    Ok that’s a lot of deadwood…this is not a good indicator of progress. I suppose we have to give them a chance. Maybe the New President will kick them into action to deliver. A soldier as foreign affairs minister, are we going to “war” with the world? Very odd choice.

  • Inini

    This is quite dissappointing…anyways lets wait and see

  • Jabu

    You spoke well; you gave people hope through your speeches and this is how you acted surely Mr. President!!! Ndadzamirwa ini.

  • Mungandidii

    Tine dambudziko chairo, no wooow factor at all. Tashaya vanhu chaivo here. Hopefully it will only be for a short while.

  • betty

    Zanu Never disappoints. Well done ED!! I was getting worried that people were beginning to accept the ZANU PF Rule. at least we have a chance at destroying your party. Pheeew

    OH not forgetting the state meinisters, we have 39 new ministers. Lacoste yamaichemera! at least they managed to weaken themselves

  • Chokwadi

    Huge Disappointed, the cabinet is still big and I strongly disagree with some appointments. I also don’t understand why we need deputy ministers when there is a permanent secretary, what is the use of the deputy minister rather make the permanent secretary as deputy minister then.

    • Nyika Mukanza

      So who is not deadwood among sitting MPs that were not selected for Cabinet? Remember the POTROZ has to appoint the bulk of Cabinet from among sitting MPs and he was not going to pick from MDC for obvious reasons.

  • Chokwadi

    Hugely Disappointed, cabinet still big. What is the roll of a deputy minister can somebody tell me, are there not permanent secretarie in these ministries…

  • Lux

    No!no!no!bad mistake,same old recycled cabinet! Nxxxxxxaaaaa

  • Ziyabheda

    Where are your deputies cde President?

  • Concerned

    Cde President, you said in your own words that ”The voice of the people is the voice of God”. However with these new appointments I think you have let the nation down. Hon Chinamasa was the Finance minister who failed to deliver over the past 5 yes, so was Hon Dokora and Hon Mandiwanzira. On the other hand some ministers like Hon Mpofu have never delivered since they became ministers. You are shooting yourself in the foot Cde President.

  • yowe

    This is a joke!!! Hahahahaha yowe!!! All hope has been lost now .Hapana chinobuda apa the same useless faces Obert, Supa , Dokora,Mupfumira etc ED we thought waiva murume who would change things..aya ndiwomarara chaiwo YOWE What do provincial ministers do exactly??

  • Chokwadi

    People have been protesting against Dokora and formal complaints have been fowarded but the guy is back again. There must be something we dont know about Dokora. Whatever it is, it all goes against the will of the people. Simba rehove riri mumvura…the people’s will was deliberately ignored and we the people are diassapointed.

    Lets’ give them a chance guys. No need to judge before performance.. I always liken this Cabinet to Man U. New coach, great results… Same players

  • Givemore Chivandaidze

    ummm apa Manje our CDE ED missed it. When pple were marching in streets on the 18th of November Dokora’s name as enemy of progress was on placards as well. Be it teachers/parents and students this man is not loved and he doesnt comand any respect from the public just like how the CMG OF POLICE WAS BOOED at the inaugaration ceremony on the 21st of November. Much better if HE LOVES HIM ( DOKORA) could have given him a different ministry which does not interact with public.We now have little hope for the future of our children and this man dents the new Dawn.HIS anti Christs POLICIES clushes with the values of Christianity for which ,THE head of state and Government and The commander in chief, CDE ED Munangagwa is really a God fearing man then he should be careful with pple around him, who may destroy his legacy futi…. Pamberi ne Operation Restore legacy!!!

  • Kushinga Phikelele

    Aya ndoma1, to be frank with you Mr president your ratings with the general populace has been reduced to 10/100 from 95/100. You have demolarised the people who had placed high hopes on you, how can you bring back the likes of Dokora, Obert Mpofu a well known mineral looter in Zimbabwe, Mr Bondman Chinamasa who was booed at Zimbabwe ground you should have seen that people dont have faith in him as Minster of Finance. on the other hand you have ignored the youth, whom are they to look up too in your OLD MADHARA cabinet, that is a grave mistake your have made in sidelining the youth in your cabinet. The youth dont relate to your Cabinet period. So as soon as possible go back to the drawing board and redo your cabinet appointment. REMEMBER elections are around the corner. Mr President mukangokanya madhaka during this period up to election time this will be an automatic defeat to you. munenge marumwa nechekuchera. imbonzwai zviri kuda vanhu on ground on issue of your cabinet. ndatenda

  • Munya Murombe

    At first glance you can tell that The ZDF and The War Veterans have been rewarded! After a refreshing speech at the President’s inauguration I was expecting to shift into travelling gear but the opposite is true. GOOD ATTEMPT is the best I can say. Probably the first time Sydney my home boy and big brother is not a Minister if I recall well. Can only think he will be one of the VPs….now the other likely VPs Mpofu and Mohadi are Ministers…who is the other VP likely to be….a woman????

    • Stephanie

      I think Nyasha Chikwinya who has been dropped out of Women’s Affairs will be appointed VP.

  • Tawanda

    Hang on a bit guys. You never seem to understand politics hence misplaced optimism/pessimism. ED still needs support from his cronies to secure his party and state presidency and to be seen to be rewarding loyalists as well. The cabinet after elections will incrementally drop some of these incompetent faces and certified thieves, but he knows that drastic and wholesale changes at this point as at any other time can and will backfire on him. Politics is unfortunately about yourself as well as the people. The art lays in the balance of these competing interests. You can only truly make drastic changes after securing your final term of office. At that point, there is nothing to lose in gambling.

    • tapuwa

      i said something exactly like this but editor ddn’t publish my comment.wanhu wakungofunga service delivery chete ko political career yake,worse still with elections so near why would he risk making enemies around his circles.They will deliver because they know vari muoffice for 7 months,anoda kupinda munext cabinet should deliver now!

    • muchovi washoko

      Yes he could not show his colours at this point. Do you think army yaitirwa favour, for example? Later on President vakabvisa munhu vaita re-shuffle kana wanga uri kuArmy uchakudzokera here?

  • gig

    No serious investor will come to Zim and invest with this kind of cabinet.. Those in the diaspora who thought the depature of Bob meant Zimbabwe will be the place to be… forget and smile.. Those in Zim suffer continues..

  • Milton Moyo

    guys i think in as much as these guys appointed are corrupt or have failed in the past, only policies can change our economy to a greater extent. ln my view zanupf used opposition parties to remove mugabe and putting mnangagwa, and it will be difficult to destroy zanupf with backup from army, however if he appoints some from opposition parties it will be fair.

  • Cde Hondo

    They all passed the so called retirement age. This is the youthful government you https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ba72ac9c43a19efae85114a0de09d92851886e75da3e267be55f553250e1be94.jpg
    promised. Shame on you. Mugabe is the missing link to corruption only here.

  • Nhewa Simboti

    Really disappointed. What gross abuse and betrayal of our energy and sweat on the 18th of November 2017 march. Remember, not all people who marched were all fans of Zanu PF but people of Zimbabwe. So Chinamasa was right all along that this was a Zanu PF only agenda. Your speech your Excellency was very deceptive, what else can we say and conclude – you conned us. Just look at the pictures of the newly appointed cabinet – they must be resting and keeping our former President RGM company vachitaurira vazukuru ngano.

    Cabinet yenyu iyi is like appointing one’s late grandfather {with due respect, MHSRIEP} to teach you smartphone functionalities – retrogressive, disheartening, useless and futile. Agree with observation that the Cabinet is a GNU of Army and Zanu PF. What hogwash.

  • James Bhora

    The strategy is to call these ministers back to their positions so that they can easily be investigated without skipping the borders considering that millions will need to be declared of assets and cash stashed abroad,

    • muchovi washoko

      kkkkkk dream big

  • Duke-General Hacha

    While I understand that the President’s hands are somewhat tied up because he has to chose his ministers from the deadwood in Parliament, I am not impressed by some of the people he chose to retain in his cabinet. Mpofu of all people – and the blundering Dokora????? The Cabinet is still bloated – our economy requires only 12 ministerial Portfolios. The rest should be departments.
    1. Home Affairs
    2. Foreign Affairs
    3. Defence
    4. Health
    5. Education & Sports
    6. Agriculture
    7. Finance, Industry & Commerce
    8. Justice
    9. Labour & Social Services
    10. Information
    11. Mining
    12. Tourism, Wildlife & Conservation
    With such a lean cabinet the President can pick 75% of his nominees from outside Parliament.

    • Cde Kangai

      The law does not allow him to pick up 75% from outside parliament. He can only pick 5, which he did very well.

  • Murenga

    Oh ED!!!

  • Vhomoto

    A clear case of “Kufarira n’anga neinobata amai.” Seems like our countrywide celebrations have been short lived. Highly Juntarised Cabinet, dollollo on technocrats, just one or two. Back to square one in my view

  • STEVEN JAKA

    It is full of old people ,where is new blood? Some of them were ministers before i was born for example Mr Hungwe of Masvingo.

  • Moto Moto

    I am forming my own 9 member cabinet. ????

  • The Analyst

    In the main, the ministers have to come from MPs so choices are limited as some MPs have G40 blood in them and some are illiterate.

  • Mandiita

    Mr President, the support that we gave you on the day of the solidarity march, regardless of being Zanu PF or not, was to welcome and embrace the change having placed our hopes on you that you had brought us the hour. Some placards with yours and Chiwenga’s pictures even read “Our liberators”. How then can a liberator expect to inspire the nation when he goes on to cherry-pick his cabinet from the same old and tired horses who were an inseparable entity from the 37 year regime. What new ideas are they going to bring us for change? With this kind of dashing of the nation’s hopes, suppose God is making us wiser as to where to place our vote come 2018.

    There no change there !!!!!!
    There is nothing much on Chitando Muface waPresident .

    I just believe its another group of recycled failures.

  • Hwata Mufakose

    I believe that energy and power development required a hands on technocrat or at least an experienced hand in that field as it anchors the whole new dispensation. Now we get given a non-specialist journeyman who is only coming back from a long illness! No assured and sustainable power and energy, no economic recovery to talk about.

  • Mudzimbahwe

    Presidential scholarships should fall under ministry of Higher Education

  • Moe_Scyslack2

    That’s the only way. Mnangagwa was presented here with an opportunity to prove himself. What does he do? He picks the same old tired faces like Chinamasa, Mpofu and Dokora, etc. The coup guy nis now the face of Zimbabwe to the world! That eliminates any doubt that the army now run things. Makarau is still at ZEC and trckster Mudede is cooking numbers. The CIO is still embeded at ZEC. I hope the voice of the electorate is heard next year.

  • Dickson Bandera

    I believe it would do no good to introduce a new minister in the education ministry at the moment given that Dr Dokora introduced a curriculum which we all agree is new. Let him wind up. Remember, though expectations are higher than ever, these placements are interim. A new cabinet is coming after elections next year. If we change the horse in the middle of the race, we risk another new curriculum, and come 2018 after elections, perhaps a new minister, another new curriculum . We end up confusing students.

  • Cde Kangai

    I personally think it is too early to judge the new cabinet. Experience is needed tk deliver in 9 months before elections. Besides, there are limitations of the people to choose from given the type of MPs voted under Mr Mugabe. Only time will tell if the new President and his team will deliver.

  • RejectedStone, Cornerstone

    I wonder why they all stick to this piece of shytman

  • General Nundo

    they are duplicating the role of provincial administrators, councilors and mayors. this should be removed.

    ticking bomb first I applaud the effort in trimming down but for now there was no need for any deputies whatsoever let these deadwood earn their money by doing some work for a change,and also women and the young should have also been given a chance how are we supposed to advance with the new technology if we don’t have the young,vibrant,innovative on the fore front ,look how long it took to move from analog radio to digital ,all primary schools should be having computer lessons Zim is filty rich so we can afford that lol its high time ministers know their posts are not executive CEO company business posts they are working for the country not running a company

  • sarah Mahoka
