Emmerson Mnangagwa, the president of Zimbabwe on Thursday, August 30, 2018, re-appointed his two vice, Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi.

Chiwenga was Zimbabwe’s defence forces chief who led the military intervention which toppled former President Robert Mugabe.

The two vice presidents were sworn into office by Chief Justice Luke Malaba at the State House in the presence of Mnangagwa and other senior government officials.

Mnangagwa had earlier been sworn-in on Sunday after the constitutional court dismissed opposition leader Nelson Chamisa’s petition challenging his election victory in the July 30 polls.

He first appointed the two vice presidents in November 2017 when he took over from former President Mugabe, who resigned after a military intervention that ended his 37 years rule.

Mnangagwa is still to appoint his cabinet.
