In a move aimed at addressing the country’s economic challenges, Mnangagwa has chosen to retain Mthuli Ncube as the Finance Minister.
One significant change includes the removal of Constantino Chiwenga from his dual role as health minister.
Dr. Douglas Mombeshora has been named as the new health minister.
Another notable appointment is Soda Zhemu as the new mines minister, while Edgar Moyo, the former deputy primary and secondary education minister, takes over the energy portfolio.
Winston Chitando, the former mines minister, has been appointed as the new local government minister, with July Moyo now heading the public service, labor, and social welfare ministry.
President Mnangagwa has also named his son, David Kudakwashe Mnangagwa, as a deputy minister responsible for shadowing the Finance Minister.
His nephew, Tongai Mnangagwa, will serve as the deputy minister for tourism and hospitality, supporting Barbra Rwodzi, who returns to her previous portfolio.
Monica Mutsvangwa, who previously held the role of information minister, has been assigned to women’s affairs and SMEs. Jennifan Muswere is her successor in the information ministry.
Christopher Mutsvangwa, Monica Mutsvangwa’s husband, has been appointed as the minister responsible for the newly created Ministry of Veterans of Liberation.
Tatenda Annastacia Mavetera, a former actress known for her role in the popular TV series Studio 263, has been appointed as the new ICT minister.
Torerayi Moyo, the former chairman of the parliamentary committee on primary and secondary education, will assume the role of Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, replacing Evelyn Ndlovu, who has been reassigned as the Matabeleland South provincial minister.
President Mnangagwa secured a second term in office following last month’s disputed vote, which drew criticism from opposition parties and international observers.
The election took place against the backdrop of severe economic challenges, including a lack of foreign investment, high unemployment, soaring inflation, and a rapidly depreciating local currency.
