HARARE – MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora has named a 26 member shadow Cabinet to keep the team of President Emmerson Mnangagwa under scrutiny and ensure smooth implementation of government policies.
Speaking at a media briefing in the capital on Thursday, Mwonzora said the shadow Cabinet would present alternative policies to steer the country out of the woods.
The team comprises of party chairperson Morgen Komichi (Defence and War Veterans), Tapiwa Mashakada (Finance and Economic Development), Khalipani Phugeni (ICT), Yvonne Musarurwa (Environment), Vincent Tsvangirai (Youth, Sports and Culture) and Brian Dube (Foreign Affairs).
The list also includes Peter Moyo (State Security), Ruth Labode (Health), and Tichivanani Mavetera (Transport), among others.
“We are appointing shadow ministers whose role is to provide a critical eye on government policies and come up with alternative policies in the interest of Zimbabwe,” Mwonzora said.
Mwonzora also appointed a team of State ministers who are all tasked with keep a check at provincial government officials in respective 10 provinces.
The former MDC Alliance secretariat who has become more inclined towards the ruining party ZANU PF of late also said his party was willing to contribute to Mnangagwa’s international re-engagement plan especially the re-admission to the Commonwealth.
