Filed under: Breaking News,International News |

The Head of the Army who seized power from President Mugabe has been appointed Vice president of Zimbabwe.

In what is seen as a way to appreciate him for coming to his rescue when President Mugabe fired him, new President Emmerson Mnangagwa has given General Chiwenga the number 2 top position.

The Soldier who went to Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) was appointed Minister of Legal Affairs.

The appointment has been confirmed by Presidential press secretary George Charamba.

“The President and First Secretary of Zanu PF Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa has appointed Retired General Constantino Dominic Nyikadzino Guvheya Chiwenga as Vice President and Second Secretary of Zanu PF,” reads Charamba’s statement.

Charamba said President Mnangagwa has also appointed Cde Kembo Mohadi as Vice President and Second Secretary of Zanu PF.

He has said the appointments are with immediate effect.

President Mnangagwa was installed as Head of State for Zimbabwe ending 37 year reign of Robert Mugabe after General Chiwenga seized power following succession power struggle in the ruling Zanu-PF.

President Mugabe had fired his long time ally Mnangagwa in what is a move to pave way for his wife Grace to take over ahead of the Zanu-PF Congress.

The Army reacted by seizing power saying theye wanted to get rid of criminals around President Mugabe who was later forced to resign through a letter to Parliament after days of persuasion.

A Zambian Eye analyst has described the development as an alliance government formed by Zanu-PF and the Military saying Zimbabweans should brace themselves for a very long time under Zanu-PF.
