President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Friday named a new cabinet in which he dropped a number of political “heavyweights.” Some of the former ministers spoke to The Standard about their plans now they are no longer in government.
Former Health and Child Care minister David Parirenyatwa said,
I have done my best, the best of my passion, remember I am a trained medical doctor so for now, I will take a break and consider many options available. I really support what the president has done and I look forward to supporting his team…I will consider going back into practice as a member doctor or many other options, but I really support the president’s vision to move the country forward.
Former ICT minister Supa Mandiwanzira said,
We all are all called to serve at different times and my time came. I am happy to say I gave the job my all. I served loyally and diligently. Now that I am not in Cabinet, it is an opportunity to continue to serve from a different platform. I will continue to serve the president and my party from Parliament and the private sector, which I am planning to re-join.
