In a statement this afternoon, Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, Dr Misheck Sibanda said in appointing VP Chiwenga, President Mnangagwa noted the urgency needed to stabilise the health delivery system in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic where the country has registered an acute surge of cases.

    Lunatics are now running the asylum people. Hearty and reassuring news, that the chap who goes to India & China for medical care, is now in charge of the health dept.

    Might be a very good choice!
    After his many lengthy and costly stays in very expensive medical facilities all over the world at our expense he must surely be an expert in things medical. Especially on hospital visitors trying to murder their cheating husbands.
    But of course, not in finance as he never paid a cent for these gallivants.
    These, as we all now know were paid by us!

    Once again proving that expertise is not a requirement to be in charge of anything within this ZANUPF government.  Just as being able to recognize an aircraft was sufficient to put one uneducated terrorist in charge of the Air Force, now here is a man well acquainted with being a patient in faraway non-Zimbabwe hospitals is considered sufficient experience to be in charge of the health of Zimbabwe citizens.  What an utter joke is this mess… but bring your investment dollars, anyway.
