The next cabinet meeting will be held next week on Wednesday as President Emmerson Mnangagwa had other international commitments.
Cabinet did not meet this week because President Mnangagwa was attending the 41st Ordinary Summit of Southern African Development Community (SADC) Heads of State and Government in Malawi early in the week.

In a notice to Cabinet members on Friday, the Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Misheck Sibanda said:
The Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, Dr Misheck J.M. Sibanda wishes to advise all Cabinet members that the next Cabinet meeting will be held at 0900 hours on Wednesday, 25th August 2021.
This has been occasioned by the need to accommodate His Excellency the President’s other international commitments.
Members should therefore be guided accordingly.
Cabinet normally meets on Tuesdays but coincidentally, Zambia’s President-Elect Hakainde Hichilema will be sworn in on Tuesday next week and President Mnangagwa is expected to attend the inauguration in Lusaka.
