The President of the Republic of Zimbabwe
State House
1 Chancellor Avenue

Your Excellency Sir, Chapter 2 Movement AND Abantwana BoMzabalazo (Children of ZPRA cadres) in accordance with section 59 of the constitution hereby petition you to appoint Dr. Ruth Labode as Minister of Health. The Constitution grants you power as the sole appointing authority to appoint members of your cabinet.

The nation urgently needs a Minister of Health and substantive Permanent Secretary as we are faced with a global pandemic, and a collapsing health care system.

We petition you to set aside partisan politics and appoint Dr. Ruth Labode as Minister of Health. Dr. Labode rose through the ranks from General Medical officer to Provincial Medical Director and currently chairs the Parliamentary Portfolio committee on health.

Dr. Labode has the technical competence to spearhead the nation's response to the COVID – 19 pandemic and resuscitation of our national health care system. She understands the plight of our healthcare workers and is the best person to advise your government accordingly on how best to improve conditions of service for our health care personnel.

Warm regards,

Mr. Mgcini Ncube
For Chapter 2 Movement and its members

Mr. S. Dube
For Abantwana BoMzabalazo (Children of ZPRA Veterans)
