GRANDPA APPOINTS GRACE

BAMBA ZONKE | Grace Mugabe’s husband has sacked three ministers and reassigned 10 others as he clears out Lacoste.

GRANDPA APPOINTS GRACE

Grace wanted her husband to fire VP Mnangagwa. But Mugabe clipped Mnangagwa’s wings, leaving him severely weakened. Grace and G40 are now in charge of both Zanu PF and government.

Those axed from Cabinet include Priscah Mupfumira (Public Service), Tshinga Dube (War Veterans) and Abednico Ncube (Rural Development).

Mupfumira and Dube were widely believed to be sympathetic to Mnangagwa for allegedly capturing key State institutions and plotting to topple Mugabe.

Mupfumira was replaced by Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao (formerly Youth minister) with Dube giving way to Cain Mathema (formerly Matabeleland North Provincial Affairs minister), while Ncube had his ministry disbanded altogether with the Rural Development element taken back to Saviour Kasukuwere’s Local Government ministry, while the Arts and Culture component was given to Makhosini Hlongwane’s Sports ministry.

Kasukuwere was, however, stripped of his influence on urban areas which was given to various Provincial Affairs ministers most of whom retained their posts with former Health Deputy minister Paul Chimedza replacing the late Shuvai Mahofa as Masvingo Provincial Affairs minister.

Ministers who were unscathed in yesterday’s reshuffle include Jonathan Moyo (Higher Education), Lazarus Dokora (Primary and Secondary Education), Oppah Muchinguri (Climate and Water), Samuel Undenge (Energy), Joseph Made (Agriculture), Walter Chidakwa (Mines), Supa Mandiwanzira (ICT), Joram Gumbo (Transport), Douglas Mombeshora (Lands and Rural Resettlement), Nyasha Chikwinya (Women Affairs), David Parirenyatwa (Health), Kembo Mohadi (State Security), Sydney Sekeramayi (Defence), Michael Bimha (Industry and Commerce), Sithembiso Nyoni (SMEs), and Josaya Hungwe (Psychomotor Activities).
