Buhera South Member of Parliament Joseph Chinotimba says more powers should be vested in the hands of Emmerson Mnangagwa so that he can appoint whoever he wants to be in Cabinet.

Chinotimba told Parliament during a debate on the Constitution Amendment Bill that it could lead to more unity as even members of the opposition could be appointed Ministers on the benevolence of President.

“The President must nominate the Ministers that he wants to work with. If he chooses Job Sikhala to be the Minister, no one should stop him from doing so. This is a law that must be passed as we are moving towards the next elections”.

Chinotimba said ministers should be elected by the President not parliament”.

“Let us not copy what South Africa or America is doing because we should not copy laws. So, my point is the President must elect the people that he wants to work with.”
