Zimbabweean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has appointed war veterans to top posts in his new cabinet, with Patrick Chinamasa named as Finance Minister.
Air Marshal Perrance Shiri is Land Minister and Major General Sibusiso Moyo Foreign Minister, among other appointments.
Africa correspondent Crystal Orderson elaborates.
We hear from the opposition leader Tendai Biti that it is quite a disappointment to see these cabinet appointments and if Zimbabweans are hoping for change, they are not going to get it.— Crystal Orderson , Africa corespondent
