    This is one of the best cabinet setup in years for Zimbabwe, my favorites being Mthuli Ncube, and Kirsty Coventry. As a nation we should support our leadership to progress.

  20. Thanks President ED a progressive cabinet.

  21. Nation is built through constructive criticism and not thru traditional falling head over heals praise. With regards what his Excellency public input needs and national needs, at least some material criticism on cabinet size and pessistance of our national need for deputy ministers IN OUR NATIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES. I personally mavelled others’ suggested full knowledge of ALL the ministers and deputy ministers. Otherwise several such glossing comments are suspicious and needless. However his Excellency’s good effort stll merits my personal acknowledgement.

  22. Welldone Garwe machinja hatina neremuromo. But pliz ED mosiyawo Mthuli aite basa rake kwete kumuvhiringa vhiringa, kana ati mari hapana hapana hatidi kuti akurumidze kurisigner mamutadzisa kuita basa rake

  24. A good cabinet for the first tym in zim’s history.

  25. Comment…home affairs yadiiko APA

  26. Kudzora Gumbo ari tainted already.


  28. Why have so many ministers for such a poor country. No need for all those deputy ministers, just copying mentor Mugabe.

    1. very soon you will be eating your own words! Zimbabwe is not a poor country, you just wait and see

  29. Capitalistic Servant

    Real hopes ignited amongst Zimbabweans, the old ones who have been Ministers for over five years should mainly serve to ensure a smooth and gradual transformation to a higher middle income country. Excellent picks for Finance, Foreign Affairs, Sports, Arts and Youths, Higher Education, Health. Indeed Zimbabwe is open for business, as the people of Zimbabwe we are ready for business, together we will not only create employment for our youths and but also nurture youth entrepreneurship allowing them to be innovative and creative.

  30. Barbican bank rakawa na Ncube uyo, hobho nyaya dzake
    Dzoke dzoke motora state funds and splash henyu pama chartered flights
    Kubira varombo kare, lets hope ndoo kekupedzesera

  31. The President uses authority derived from the constitution to appoint ministers. However, it would have been good for a ‘listening president’ to also listen to the voice of those in the other politicl camp. So far he has perhaps listened to those in his own political stable. While there is nothing wrong about this, one would have expected him to match his words with his actions.
