Zimbabwe President Fires Security Minister

 
Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa has fired the state security minister Owen Ncube.

In a press statement, the president’s office said Mr Ncube had been removed “with immediate effect for conduct inappropriate for a minister of government.


No further details were given.

The sacked minister was placed under US sanctions in 2019 over the government’s crackdown on protesters, the opposition and the civil society.

The UK also slapped sanctions against him and three security chiefs last year over alleged ‘human rights abuses.
