Zimbabwe military officials given key jobs in post-Mugabe cabinet

 

Nairobi, Dec 1: Zimbabwe’s new president has announced a fresh cabinet with key roles given to veterans of the ruling Zanu-PF party and senior soldiers, and no posts for the opposition.
Emmerson Mnangagwa took power after a military takeover and popular protests ousted Robert Mugabe last week. Many hoped the 75-year-old would give leading opposition politicians significant roles in an “inclusive” government in line with his promises to reach out to all “patriotic Zimbabweans”.
