Qualifications Are Not A Prerogative For One To Be A Minister: Justice Minister On Health Minister's Alleged Fake Qualifications
Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Ziyambi Ziyambi seemed to irk members of parliament when he said that ministers are appointed by the President while legislators where asking Minister of Health and Child Care, Obadiah Moyo to clear the air on his qualifications. The Minister is alleged to have misrepresented his qualifications by claiming that he is a doctor. Binga North MP Prince Dubeko Sibanda said,
Whispers are coming out of the development partners saying that they do not trust this minister because he is alleged to have fake qualifications. Does he possess the qualifications that he purports to have or does he not? I think we need then to create confidence in the health sector, and the minister should clear that or we are going nowhere.
Ziyambi then responded saying,
First of all, he is out of order because the minister is presenting a ministerial statement on cholera. Secondly, according to the section 104 of the constitution, ministers are appointed by the president….nowhere is it written in the constitution that qualifications are a prerogative for one to be a minister.
Ziyambi was interrupted by Zengeza West MP Job Sikhala who also accused him of masquerading as a lawyer as he was not registered with the Law Society of Zimbabwe.
