NCA spokesperson Madock Chivasa says his party further argued in its papers about the constitutionality of assigning Vice President Mnangagwa to the post of justice minister.
Dewa Mavhinga says he is pessimistic about Zimbabwe’s future, especially following the announcement of the new old ministers.
On top of their vice presidential roles, Mnangagwa will continue leading the Justice Ministry while Mphoko, a career diplomat, becomes Minister of National Healing.
Josephine, a Zimbabwean woman, was among the women who were assisted this week. She had lived with her obstetric fistula for 28 years, and like many other women was ostracized and left by her husband after receiving the injury through child birth.
In a statement last night, the president’s office said the appointments, together with those of several ministers, was made in accordance with the country’s new constitution.
'Comrade Mujuru and myself are really colleagues, armed struggle colleagues and comrades and there is nothing of any enmity between me and her.'
Chimhosva said while the two men’s sacrifice to the country is unquestionable, what still remains unanswered is their ability to help President Mugabe take the country forward.
NCA spokesman Madock Chivasa says the president is violating the country’s constitution by trying to replace the fired Vice President Joice Mujuru with two vice presidents.
Mphoko was on the news in 2003 when he almost casued a diplomatic row with Botswana after he was accused of assaulting a reporter for Botswana’s Sunday Tribune.
'The task is onerous and I have to fulfill the aspirations of our people and the expectations of my party.'
The Zimbabwe National Students Union has expressed the same sentiments, adding that this is only a Zanu PF program.
The elevation of Mnangagwa was widely anticipated and is viewed as a way by Mr. Mugabe of readying the ambitious minister to succeed him when he leaves office.
