Mutambara tipped for Science ministerial post

.. Ncube to take Justice?


HARARE – Mutambara is poised to become the new minister of Science and Technology while Ncube is tipped to become Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs minister in Mugabe’s government, according to a senior Zanu (PF) source.  

Mugabe is expected to appoint Cabinet this week, or early next week. Control of the Senate will depend on the president, with powers to directly appoint 15 members and strongly influence who gets other positions.  

Control of the Senate is significant in that it can block legislation passed by the House of Assembly.  

The MDC, with support from MPs of a breakaway faction, can pass some bills in the lower house but these can be blocked in the Senate.
