I Am Happy With The Move, Had Been In Government For 23 Years: Obert Mpofu Speaks On Cabinet Axing


Former Minister of Home Affairs and Culture, Obert Mpofu has applauded President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s cabinet selections despite the fact that he was dropped. Mpofu called on all his comrades to support Mnangagwa as he attempts to renew the party and government. Speaking to The Standard, Mpofu said,

Some of us have been in government for 23 years. It was high time for some of us to leave for young and energetic leaders. It is a programme of Zanu PF, which is not meant to disadvantage anyone. I am happy with the move. I went to the Senate and I am the party’s secretary for administration, what more do I want?

I am appealing to all my comrades to support the president in his quest to renew the party and government. I am excited about it and think this is the way to go. We have done our best, it’s high time we provided space to the president to renew the party and government.

However, former Minister of Finance, Patrick Chinamasa chose not to comment saying,

I cannot comment on those issues, you know it. If I want to talk about it some other time, I will publish a book.
