Temba Mliswa’s comments follow recent appointments by Mnangagwa filling the posts left by the deaths of Sibusiso Moyo and Biggie Matiza.
The appointment of Frederick Shava brings the total to 6 which is unconstitutional, says Mliswa.
Norton independent member of Parliament, Temba Mliswa, said President Emmerson Mnangagwa was misguided in appointing more than 5 non-constituency members as cabinet ministers.
“Let’s say Hon. Shava is set to become Senator for Mberengwa to qualify him as a member of the August House & subsequently balancing the scales, then the Senatorial appointment should’ve been made,” he adds.
There are already 5 non-constituencies holding Parliament sitters who are government ministers 1. Prof. M. Ncube 2. Hon. K. Coventry 3. Prof. A. Masuka 4. Prof. A. Murwira & 5. Hon. J. Moyo.
Mliswa says this is where the Attorney General’s office has let Mnangagwa down administratively by not advising him.
