Speaking after the swearing in of his deputies, Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said the work of the two Vice Presidents will be to supervise ministers.
He also warned Chiwenga and Mohadi that days of complacency and absenteeism in the public service were long gone. Said Mnangagwa:
The new Vice Presidents are not only expected to perform, but to show results and that entails guarding against complacency. They have to drive the Ministers. The performance of the Ministers will be reflected by the supervision given by the two Vice Presidents so the assessment of the two will be based on what comes out of our ministries.
