MPs ditch lunch after Cabinet announcement

HARARE - A luncheon for members of parliament (MPs) came to a standstill yesterday when Zanu PF chief whip Joram Gumbo and an official from the President’s office made an impromptu announcement of the new Cabinet.

All the named legislators were advised to immediately head to State House. 

The named parliamentarians could not contain their joy as they quickly dumped their forks and knives and headed for the door at a local hotel.

Some newcomers could not believe it as they shouted “tapinda tapinda (slang for ‘we are in’).”

The new comers including ZiFM boss Supa Mandiwanzira, Paul Chimedza, Tendai Savanhu, Simbarashe Mudarikwa, Thabitha Kanengoni, Paul Mavhima, Abigail Damasani, Fortune Chasi and Tongai Muzenda could be seen beaming after the announcement.

They could be seen hugging each other, celebrating for making it into Zimbabwe’s Cabinet.

Deputy Ministers are not cabinet ministers, no? My question is why did they not simply give the Information ministry to Supa instead of making him deputy?

Supa is good at asking questions live on TV and not that good at answering them. Jona can answer any question anywhere @ anytime even it may be utter rhetoric nonsense!

Information ministry is not only about answering questions, otherwise there d only be appointed a govt spokesman. Rather, it is more about controlling/regulating information dispensation from govt and pvt media and other sources. However, it is easy for some info ministers worldwide and in history(eg nazi goebels) to mistakenly think their primary duty is speaking.
