Zimbabwe’s president names son, nephew as finance, tourism ministers

President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa, has appointed his son, David Kudakwashe Mnangagwa, as the deputy finance minister in his new cabinet following re-election.

He also named his nephew, Tongai Mafidhi Mnangagwa, as the deputy minister of tourism and hospitality.

The nomination of Mnangagwa’s family members drew objections, raising questions about nepotism inside the administration.

The president’s son and nephew are part of the newly constituted cabinet consisting of 26 ministries.

Mnangagwa further appointed husband and wife, Christopher and Monica Mutsvangwa, as ministers.

He gave Christopher the power to lead the new Ministry of Veterans of Liberation, while Monica Mutsvangwa is the new minister of Women’s Affairs and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

His son, David Mnangagwa, who recently graduated with a law degree from the University of Zimbabwe, entered parliament through the youth quota system on the Zanu PF party list from the Midlands province.

According to African News, President Mnangagwa is reportedly contemplating a position in his administration for another of his sons, Emmerson Junior.

This is coming at the time coups are raging across the Sahel as African leaders are regarded as the most power-hungry around the world.
