Zimbabwe’s Mnangagwa gives key cabinet jobs to military figures

Zimbabwe’s new President Emmerson Mnangagwa has named his cabinet, appointing senior military figures to high-profile positions.

Critics have said that it has dashed hopes of change in the country.

Mr Mnangagwa was inaugurated as president last week. He took over from Robert Mugabe who had been in power for 37 years.

Mr Mugabe stepped down after the army took control of the country, following a power struggle in the ruling party.

Thousands of people celebrated Mr Mugabe’s resignation as they hoped the failed economy would improve.

Some had hoped that President Mnangagwa would appoint members of the opposition to his cabinet, to form a transitional government until elections next year but this did not happen.
