President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Wednesday appointed former Minister of State for Midlands province and Gokwe-Kana legislator, Owen Ncube as the new Minister of State for National Security in the President’s Office. Ncube took oath of office at State House before Mnangagwa who was accompanied by his two vice presidents.

Speaking to the press soon after the ceremony, Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda said the appointment was with immediate effect. Ncube declined to talk with the media.

Following the appointment, citizens went on a rampage on social media criticising the credibility of Ncube and whether the cabinet was still lean as Mnangagwa had previously promised.

Ncube is allegedly behind the operation of a militia group called  Al-Shabab named after the Somali based Islamic terrorist group which has been causing terror in the Midlands province.

Below are some curated tweets on how citizens reacted to the appointment;
