Zimbabwe’s previous armed force boss Constantino Chiwenga, was confirmed today alongside long serving state security serve, Kembo Mohadi as Vice-President to President Emmerson Mnangawa.
Chiwenga drove an accepted upset a month ago that finished Robert Mugabe’s 37-year run the show. His appearance on state TV on Nov. 15 went before equipped warriors rioting, making ready for Emmerson Mnangagwa to end up president.
The swearing-in function was performed at the State House by Chief Justice Luke Malaba. Constantino Guvheya Dominic Nyikadzino Chiwenga is the most recent in a string of military pioneers to be hoisted to government positions.
His elevation to the number two post was preceded by his appointment as one of the two deputies to Mnangagwa in ZANU-PF, the ruling party. Kembo Mohadi was also appointed at the same time.
The party appointment was the first step in their elevation to state vice presidents.
Two other top military officials were earlier this month awarded ministerial posts.
They were Sibusio Moyo and Perence Shiri. Moyo was the army general who went on state television to announce the military takeover of the government and Mugabe’s house arrest. He is the new foreign affairs minister.
Shiri, former air force chief, is the Lands and Agriculture minister.
