Reportedly unimpressed by the mediocre performance of some of his ministers, President Robert Mugabe is set to soon reshuffle his cabinet, in a move which could see ministers such as Patrick Chinamasa, Walter Mzembi and Samuel Undenge, among others, reassigned or fired.

Since last year's controversial Zanu PF congress, Mugabe has fired a number of ministers linked to former vice-president Joice Mujuru who was recently expelled from the party for allegedly plotting to oust him and filled in their vacancies with vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa's allies.

Sources say the continued talk of a cabinet reshuffle has unsettled several ministers linked to Mujuru, among them, Education minister Lazarus Dokora and Sports minister Andrew Langa, now operating like sitting ducks because of their political vulnerability.


The reshuffle would also result in the filling in of several cabinet posts which are vacant at the moment. The post of Women Affairs minister was left vacant when Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri was re-deployed to Higher Education following the removal of Olivia Muchena. The Women Affairs ministry was left vacant after the appointment of the elderly Victoria Chitepo was mysteriously reversed. The post of Information and Media minister also fell vacant when the Zanu PF spin doctor Jonathan Moyo was allegedly forced to resign following his victory in the Tsholotsho by-elections last month.

The Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Misheck Sibanda announced at the weekend that cabinet would meet today. That has sparked speculation of changes.

Any alternatives ? No. Anything new from the last round of reshuffling? No. Anyone worth a pinch of trust in that cabinet? None.
As a matter of fact, survival-tested Zimbos outside that Zanu-constructi on are far more solid and effective outside political turmoils. These are the people responsible for the very little success we can speak of in Zimbabwe.

But of after what they did to Econet, no-one is safe in this republic.
