President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been showered with praises by the militant ZANU PF Youth League for promoting the ZANU PF Youth League members to higher offices.

The Youth League Secretary for Administration Tendai Chirau said Mnangagwa had fulfilled his pledge to elevate members of the league to higher echelons of power.

The statement by Chirau comes a days after the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information Nick Mangwana said Mnangagwa is grooming a successor that will take over power from him hence his appointment of youthful deputy ministers.

Read the full statement below:

The ZANU (PF) Youth League in its entirety from its affiliates, the cell, branch, district, DCC, provincial and National Structure expresses its highest acclamation and gratefulness to His Excellency President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa for living up to his word by fulfilling his promise made during the 2nd National Assembly Meeting of the Youth League 2019, where he vehemently said "... I will be increasing the number of Youthful Ministers in government". True to his word, the following Youthful Ministers were appointed:


1. Honourable Dr. Jenfan Muswere Minister of ICT (formerly Deputy Minister of ICT)

2. Honourable Nqobizitha Ndlovu ( Minister of Environment, Tourism Climate Change and Hospitality Industry (formerly Minister of Industry and Commerce).

3. Honourable Yeukai Simbanegavi ( Deputy Minister of National Housing and Social Amenities (formerly Deputy Minister of Youth Sports Arts and Recreation)

New Appointments

4.Honourable Tinodaishe Machakaire,( Deputy Minister for Youth Sports Arts and Recreation)

5.Honourable Dingimuzi Phuti, Deputy Minister of ICT

The unrelenting recognition of young people by His Excellency President Emmerson Mnangagwa's new government and the new dispensation is an endorsement of the inclusive philosophy of generational blending where the young are blended with the elders in charting the developmental trajectory of our motherland. These new developments are a confirmation of the Second Republic's commitment to intergenerational dialogue. The intergenerational paradigm marks a radical changeover from the traditional one -way perspective whereby only the elderly were considered for cabinet posts to a novel two way paradigm that promotes and sustains mutual reciprocity between generations. To the newly appointed Ministers, we wish you well as you assume and discharge your new responsibilities for the benefit of our beloved motherland Zimbabwe.
