First Post-Mugabe Zimbabwean Government Sworn In

HARARE – The new 21-minister Zimbabwean government was on Monday sworn in during a ceremony held at the presidential palace, attended by the interim president.

Two deputy ministers, ten ministers of state for provincial affairs and a new prosecutor took the oath of office in Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government.

The government includes members of the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front party and the military, which played a key role in the resignation of the country’s former president, Robert Mugabe.

The head of Zimbabwe’s air force, Perence Shiri, was appointed as agriculture minister, while General Sibusiso Moyo was named foreign minister.

Moyo was the general who announced that the military had taken control of the country in a televised speech on Nov. 15.

Interim President Mnangagwa, who served as vice president under Mugabe, was criticized for excluding the country’s political opposition from the government.

Despite the two ministerial changes made in response, there remains a general sense of discontent among the public regarding the new government.

Tensions erupted in Zimbabwe when Mugabe fired Mnangagwa in an apparent bid to clear the path for Mugabe’s wife, Grace, to take the reins of power in Zimbabwe.

Mnangagwa, a war veteran who had been a powerful figure within ZANU-PF, was seen as the most likely successor to Mugabe, who had ruled since 1980.
