HARARE – President Emmerson Mnangagwa dashed hopes of change in the country by unveiling an uninspiring Cabinet on Thursday night described by analysts as the mother of all anti-climaxes.
Mnangagwa, who had lifted the nation’s hopes after giving an impressive acceptance speech on November 24 before making the first steps towards tackling rampant corruption, left Zimbabweans at a loss for words after he recycled deadwood and ignored calls for gender parity and the advancement of youths.
It had been hoped that he would appoint members of the opposition to his Cabinet to form a transitional government until elections next year but this did not happen.
Peeved by his choice of ministers, many took to social media to air their disappointment on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
