Mnangagwa will today swear-in his newly appointed Cabinet of 20 members, 13 deputy ministers and nine provincial ministers, to come up with policies that can steer the nation out of its prolonged doldrums. The swearing-in ceremony takes place at 7am at State House.

In the new Cabinet line-up, President Mnangagwa dropped several big names from previous administrations, while blending new talent with experience. President Mnangagwa's "Dream Team" is expected to address a host of challenges, from persistent fiscal and balance of payments deficits to infrastructural and social decay accruing from the previous administration.
