MIRROR REPORTER

MASVINGO – This week's cabinet reshuffle will do little to weaken Mnangagwa's powerbase as the G40 Ministers appointed by President Mugabe are out of touch with  grassroots politics, political analysts have said.
Speaking in interviews with The Mirror, analysts also lamented the reshuffle as mere politicking and said the move will not solve any of the country's problems including the sinking economy.
Mugabe, they said needs both G40 and Lacoste factions in the 2018 elections and chances are Lacoste will punish Mugabe heavily at the elections if the standoff in the party remains unresolved.
"Mugabe announced a Cabinet that surprised all and sundry. It is mere politicking 
and the objective is to strengthen G40 and weaken Lacoste. The new appointees have no clue on how to solve the problems facing the country, in particular the economy.
"Taking Chombo from the Police and putting him in charge of the economy is to discontinue the plausible efforts that Patrick Chinamasa was putting at the Ministry of Finance," said Dr Fidelis Duri.
He said Lacoste will remain strong particularly in Masvingo and the Midlands and said this was because most of the new appointees were not grassroots politicians. 
Dr Duri also said that the sidelining of Lacoste will give the faction more time to go underground and work on the grassroots and create a real chance for them to surprise Mugabe.
He said the divisions in the ruling party is the best chance for the opposition to get better results at the next elections.
