BARELY two days after announcing his shock cabinet President Emmerson Mnangagwa has fired controversial primary and secondary education minister Lazarus Dokora.

Largely criticised for “destroying” education due to his policies on religion and curriculum, Dokora has been replaced by Professor Paul Mavima, according to a statement from the president’s office.

The office of the president said the changes have been made “to ensure compliance with the constitution and considerations of gender, demography and special needs”.

According to the statement, professor Clever Nyathi who was appointed early this week as minister of labour and social welfare has been replaced by Petronella Kagonye.

Nyathi is now the special advisor to the president on peace and reconciliation a department to be headed by a vice president to be announced after the Zanu PF Congress.

Other special advisors are Chris Mutsvangwa and Joshua Malinga (disabilities). Ahead of the new changes and according to the cabinet list released earlier Mutsvangwa was the minister of information while Malinga, former Bulawayo mayor, was the deputy minister of social welfare.

The statement further said the new ministers will be sworn in on Monday at State House.

But others said the changes were meant to address the illegality of the cabinet considering some opposition parties were already preparing to sue Mnangagwa.
