VICE President Constantino Chiwenga has replaced Obadiah Moyo as minister of Health and Child Care with immediate effect.

Moyo, who was recently fired over allegations of graft, had also presided and failed to manage a crisis that had paralysed the country’s heath sector which has seen nationawide strikes by doctors and nurses over poor working conditions.

The Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda said the decision by President Mnangagwa to appoint his deputy as head of the Health ministry was in response to the urgent need to stabilise, restructure and reform the national health delivery system in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
