Some top ZANU PF officials are reportedly not happy with President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Cabinet reshuffle which saw some perceived incompetent ministers retaining Cabinet posts.
Zimbabwe Independent reports that there are some within the ruling party who believe that Mnangagwa made new appointments merely to consolidate his grip on power.
One unnamed senior government official who spoke to Zimbabwe Independent said that the president reshuffled the Cabinet for ethnic balancing purposes since there complaints about the absence of Zezurus from Mnangagwa’s team. The official added:

We, however, expected him to drop ineffective ministers among them the Health minister (Moyo) who has shown all and sundry that he has no capacity to deal with issues affecting his ministry. He has failed to find solutions to the prolonged doctors’ strike which has exposed the government.
There have been allegations that Mnangagwa was appointing his allies with Midlands and Masvingo backgrounds the way Mugabe surrounded himself with Zezurus.
When Mnangagwa ascended to power, he appointed some technocrats among them, Professor Mthuli Ncube thereby giving the general public the impression that his main concern was bringing national goals and objectives to fruition.
