Mnangagwa to crack whip: Cabinet reshuffle imminent

President Emmerson Mnangagwa is likely to reshuffle his cabinet soon amid reports of poor performance and allegations of corruption against some of his ministers, the Zimbabwe Morning Post has learnt.

Top government sources told this publication that Mnangagwa is not happy with the way some of his ministers have been performing.

“Some ministers have failed to fit in his vision and his urgency in implementing reforms,” said the source.

“Ministers who are likely to face the boot include Information minister Monica Mutsvangwa, Transport minister Joe Biggie Matiza, Energy minister Joram Gumbo as well as ailing Foreign Affairs minister Sibusiso Moyo.”

Moyo is likely to be appointed a senior minister in the president’s office because his ministry (Foreign Affairs) demands a lot of movements as Mnangagwa pushes the re-engagement agenda.

While addressing his supporters at a “meet the people” rally in Rutenga, Masvingo, Mnangagwa said he will announce the Provincial Affairs Minister for Harare Metropolitan next week.

Sources said Mnangagwa is not happy because some of his ministers have been found wanting in his fight against corruption.
