Note: there is a pending case in the High Court questioning the legality of the appointment of Ministers who were sworn in after the quota of Ministers stated in the Constitution, as modified by Constitution Amendment 19, had been filled. The Ministers in question are Savior Kasukuwere, Joseph Made, Walter Mzembi, Flora Bhuka, Sylvester Nguni [ZANU-PF], Henry Madzorera, Giles Mutsekwa and Sekai Holland [MDC-T]. [Note: John Nkomo was also sworn in late but is no longer a Minister.] [See Bill Watch 36 for more details]
