President Mnangagwa appoints new Politburo

President Mnangagwa yesterday appointed the full Zanu PF Politburo in which he largely retained cadres that constituted the previous body

He announced the new Politburo at a Press conference at the ruling party’s headquarters where he was flanked by his two deputies — General (Retired) Constantino Chiwenga, Cde Kembo Mohadi — and National Chairman Cde Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri.

The President deferred the appointment of the new Politburo at the end of the National People’s Congress in October.

“As you may remember, I appointed these ones (Gen (Rtd) Chiwenga, Cdes Mohadi and Muchinguri) at the conclusion of our National Congress with a small steering committee to run the affairs of the party until the President appoints the Politburo in terms of article 8 (39) of our constitution as well as article 40 of our constitution. I now appoint the fully-fledged composition of Politburo of Zanu PF,” President Mnangagwa said.

Newly-appointed Politburo members include Secretary for Local Government and Devolution Cde Supa Mandiwanzira, Deputy Secretary for Transport and Social Welfare Cde James Makamba, Deputy Secretary for Environment and Tourism Joshua Sacco, Deputy Secretary for Finance Professor Mthuli Ncube, Advocate Fortune Chasi, Deputy Secretary for Information and Publicity Cde Chido Sanyatwe.
