Zimbabwe swears in new cabinet ministers

Updated: 14:30 04-12-2017

Zimbabwe's new government ministers are due to be sworn in at State House in Harare on Monday morning.

The new 22-member cabinet left many in the country disappointed after President Emmerson Mnangagwa failed to include members of the opposition.

Mnangagwa was sworn in last month after a military takeover which saw the resignation of Robert Mugabe after almost four decades in power.

For many, the new cabinet does not encapsulate the hopes of a new Zimbabwe.

The new ministers include army officers, with critics saying they’re dead wood left over from Mugabe’s cabinet.

At the weekend, top government official Chris Mutsvangwa said Mnangagwa had wanted to include MDC members in his cabinet, but he was blocked by MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai.

However, this claim was dismissed by MDC deputy president Nelson Chamisa.

Chamisa took to Twitter and said no such offer was ever made.
