Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe has released the structural adjustment to his cabinet with the notable appointment of Emmerson Mnangagwa as first Vice President of the Republic of Zimbabwe alongside little known Phelekezela Mphoko as second Vice President. This comes at the wake of relieving Joice Mujuru of the VP post.
Before the dust of the reshuffle is yet to settle, sensational information comes in of an attempted assassination on the newly appointed Vice President Mnangagwa which has left his secretary critically suffering from cyanide poisoning.
Notable relegation include Simon Khaya Moyo whose Party Chair power fort has been reduces to spokesperson, though retaining a ministerial post heading the Information & Publicity department replacing Jonathan Moyo who has been reasigned to Science and Technology.
Supa Mandiwanzira who made significant vocal presence as Deputy Minister of Information and Publicity still remains unmentioned. Also notably missing is the workhorse Walter Mzembi dubbed the technocrat, perhaps after his openly indicating his possible desire to be President one day on his recent interview with Lance Guma on Nehanda Radio.
Obert Mpofu who has been dogged with corruption allegations over a lengthy period has surprisingly been entrusted with the national purse as the Secretary of Finance, unseating Patrick Chinamasa who has been rolled back to Legal Affairs. Chinamasa is deputised by Paul Munyaradzi Mangwana who critics have immediately cited as reward for strategically mobilising his UK based brother’s unelected UK party office that has made its presence at congress and previous party gatherings felt.
