      • Shalom

        Yes remained in their ministries

    • Which one is Hungwe’s ministry?

    • Hungwe is the Min of Psychomotor anomirira mavocational training centers uyo

    • Choto

      Mzembi distanced himself from the Mahofa fiasco.
      And for acting good boy..has been tremendously rewarded.
      Then in passinng we now all know WHO poisoned Mnangagwa; Robert Mugabe himself.
      Just reading this story reveals quite a lot.
      Robert Mugabe wants to die a LIFE president.
      On his death bed, He wants to transfer power to his wife.
      Mugabe knows everything.
      He is the one playing the two camps one against the other.
      BUT, he has total control of both sides.
      We ALL now see how Zimbabwe was ruined.
      Even with this defense from Mnangagwa; the onslaught will continue BECAUSE it has the blessing of Mugabe.

  • Pliz give us a break. It’s not the 93yr old who has created a bizarre ministry. These are all the dirty works of G40. Even baboons are smart enough to know that there is a human being behind the erection of scare crow structure in the maize field and knows very well that it’s not the scare crow that planted the maize, but that it’s the human being who is hiding behind the scare crow.

    • Nick Box

      Sam wakazvipengera.

      thanks, but we are the worst. ask how many people at present have rushed to register as voters to fight mugabe whether we win or not. always complaining and doing nothing. people like morgan are dying alone now while we critises them for the fight. poor Zimbabwean.

    • The 93 year old is the one who started it all. He hasn’t been 93 years old all his life. Corruption and the fall of the economy hasn’t just started now. This has been going on for years.

    • Chara

      Not only that EnCik he also gets a Mercedez Benz and an all terrain vehicle. Also that Whatsapp Admin ministry can also fall under the ministry of information. This old man has gone bananas.

  • Part of the two million jobs created, Ministry of cyber Security Threats and Mitigation formed.

  • Seriously! Do scholarships need a separate ministry or they fall under Ministry of Education? How much work is needed on scholarships to justify the whole ministry. Who is getting these scholarships anyway because I know a lot of intelligent but underprivileged students who can’t access these scholarships.

  • Bete mumukaka Chombo apinda machena, gonzo munzungu zimbavha haro iro local government he looted ,converted council properties to personal properties , owns half of Zimbabwe’s land ,with his partner in crime G40 Fidza .

  • I agree on Cyber Security bcz a lot of information is being misused and a lot ransomwares and hacking is now on the rise. Cyber crimes need to be addressed

    • we have a ministry of defence and national security. we also have a ministry of home affairs. cyber security falls within their scope of duties, no need to create a ministry specifically for that. oh and we also have a communications and tech ministry by the way.

    • Wait until they Further devide it to Ministry of Social Media, Ministry of Fake News Monitoring ndopauchaona kuti madhiri ekupinzana basa ari kuitwa nembwa idzi. Who else works for that ministry ye Cyber Security, Deputy Minister, Permanent Secretary and other departments.

    • Justice is a very powerful Ministry my friend. U can use it to terrorize your enemies. They go one by one behind bars

    • oh really

    • Rwendo

      @Simuka. I agree. ‘Kicked upstairs’ – must be first CIO DG ever to be made a minister. At night, on Mon not Wed as announced… hope he was keeping his ‘personal files’ outside the office.

    • Bonyongwe is very dangerous too and evil….watch him carefully guys

  • And Garwe rakuchienda mumwena wejeri manje with those fraud charges and alleged misappropriation of party funds, mark my words. Now he won’t have the judiciary under his control and that will be the quickest way of getting rid of him. And Majonga issue that’s Bob’s tactics

  • Ahhh kkkk chombo wave minister wefinance ooh finish

  • Hapana zvaitwaa apa frm bad to worse

  • Cyber Security, Threat Detection and Mitigation …. are we seriously under any threat? I thought North Korea or USA or Japan could be doing that. Ndapererwa. So Mr Patrick Chinamasa, former Attorney General, Minister of Justice, Minister of Finance suddenly goes to this new job?

  • Minister of cyber security, hey

  • Ak

    Lizard i. loser

  • Ak

    When is mugabe going to reshuffle the Vice Presidents. Ndipo pazvicha nakidza

  • Lol Chombo owns half of Zimbabwe’s land. By the time he is done with finance ministry, he will own half of Zimbabwe’s banks and will have a bond note print press at his house

  • Someone ask Chinamasa what a worm is or Trojan horse 🐴? Lol probably say it is not my responsibility kk

  • Why don’t the old fossilised grand pa just resign he has become such an embarrassment to the world.

  • Minister of Cyber security and Threat detection will be called Minister of Anti Virus with immediate effect

  • This country is being led by stupid people-what was Mushore saying?-saying Mugabe is like Jesus Christ & the ministers are like Jesus’ disciples??? ooooh this country shall be cursed forever!!!

    Dokora is a buffoon, a clueless minister of education. He is one of the most hated ministers in the whole of Zimbabwe. Why are all MPs in Parliament keeping quiet about Dokora’s shambolic new curriculum and bad running of the ministry of education? We hear that many classrooms in schools have potholes appearing on the floors of the classrooms, lack of textbooks broken windows, broken toilets and dilapidated school buildings which all need repair, but Dokora is not doing anything about it. We want Dokora out!!!
