Zimbabwe’s new president Emmerson Mnangagwa has named his cabinet, appointing senior military figures to high-profile positions.
Mr Mnangagwa has made Sibusiso Moyo, the general who appeared on state TV after the recent military takeover, the new foreign minister.
The head of Zimbabwe’s air force, Perence Shiri, was named the minister of agriculture and land affairs.
Mr Mnangagwa was sworn in last week after Robert Mugabe agreed to resign.
The man who ruled Zimbabwe for 37 years stepped down after the military intervened following the sacking of Mr Mnangagwa as vice-president.
While the new president has chosen to keep many of Mr Mugabe’s former cabinet ministers in office, Mr Mnangagwa has also awarded positions to military leaders who have previously supported him.
Aside from Mr Moyo and Mr Shiri, leaders of the powerful war veterans’ association, who pushed for Mr Mugabe to go after the military intervention, also got cabinet jobs.
The appointments led government critic Tendai Biti to suggest that Zimbabweans were “wrong” to have hoped for change.
