HARARE, Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa has named retired general Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi as the country's two Vice-Presidents, with their swearing-in ceremony set for Thursday.

The government announced here Wednesday that their swearing-in follows the recent appointment of the two as Vice

Presidents and Second Secretaries of the ruling Zanu PF party and they become the country's Vice Presidents by virtue of them belonging to the ruling party.

The appointments complete the set-up of the presidium and Cabinet of the new government led by President Mnangagwa, who was sworn in as Head of State at the end of November following the dramatic resignation of former president Robert Mugabe.

The Acting Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, Colonel (Retired) Christian Katsande, said the appointments and swearing-in was in line with the Constitution. "In terms of Section 14?of the Constitution, the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, upon assuming office, must without delay appoint not more than two Vice Presidents who hold office at his or her

pleasure," Katsande said.

Before their elevation, Gen. Chiwenga was commander of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces while Mohadi had recently been appointed Defence, Security and War Veterans Minister.
