PRESIDENT Mugabe has appointed Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Cde Emmerson Mnangangwa and Zimbabwe’s former ambassador to South Africa Cde Phekezela Mphoko as his two deputies in Government and in Zanu-PF.

The post of Zanu-PF chairperson was effectively abolished and will rotate between the two VPs, as the ongoing shake-up of the ruling party continues.

The President also announced a new look Politburo made up of 33 members, down from 50.

The new team comprises a three-member Presidium, 22 heads of departments, five committee members and three deputies.

Vice Presidents Mnangagwa and Mphoko are expected to be sworn in on Friday, alongside new Cabinet ministers.

Announcing the appointments at Zanu-PF’s headquarters Wednesday afternoon, President Mugabe said more heads will roll by Friday.

“We will be making more appointments between tomorrow and Friday to brief you on the Ministers we have removed from office. They will be sworn in on Friday with the VPs,” he said.

President Mugabe said only three deputies – for Women’s Affairs (Cde Eunice Sandi Moyo); Youth League (Cde Kudzi Chipanga) and War Veterans, Detainees and Restrictees (Cde Christopher Mutsvanga) – will sit in the Politburo while others will only sit in the central committee.
