Chiwenga Slams People Calling For ED To Appoint Ministers Before MPs Are Sworn In, Says Mnangagwa Has Not Delayed Announcing Cabinet
Speaking in Kanyemba during a briefing before holding a development strategic meeting, Acting President Constantino Chiwenga criticised people who are saying Emmerson Mnangagwa has delayed appointing new ministers.
He also criticised those calling on Mnangagwa to appoint ministers before legislators are sworn in saying they do not know the law. Said Chiwenga:
The Government is being set up and I was hearing even from some who do not know the law saying it has been delayed. The President cannot set a new Cabinet before MPs are sworn in. It is so simple, but you see some writing useless things and we say just leave them like that. Kuda kungotsvaga nyaya yekutaura chete. Kana dare ragadzwa neParliament ndomunozosarudzwa maMinisters. Asi iko zvino tinavo nekuti vachiripo. Ndangoti ndingotsanangura ipapo vamwe vanoti zvino zvanonokerei. (The people who are writing those things have nothing important to say. It is only after MPs are sworn in that the President can appoint a Cabinet. But for now we still have ministers. I felt I had to explain that). Government has three arms that is the Executive, Judiciary and Legislature.Hapana anoita basa risiri rake. Umwe neumwe ane basa rake. (There is separation of powers).Feedback
The newly elected National Assembly members and senators will take their oath of office tomorrow.
