Chiwenga’s Appointment As Minister Of Defence Is Unconstitutional – Veritas

Parliamentary, legal and civil rights watchdog, Veritas, has said that the appointment of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga as the Minister of Defence and War Veterans is unconstitutional. Veritas urged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to fix the matter when he appoints a new cabinet. Said Veritas,

A further point is that Vice-President Chiwenga is appointed as Minister of Defence, and his entitlement to hold that portfolio is open to challenge since section 215 of the Constitution states that the President must appoint a Minister — not a Vice-President — to be responsible for the Defence Forces.

Veritas also said that last week’s killing of 6 civilians by Zimbabwe Defence Forces soldiers in the city centre was illegal as the right to life is inviolable under the constitution.
