No Holiday For Zimbabwe's Cabinet as They Have Point to Prove

Zimbabwe's newly sworn-in Cabinet ministers are reportedly putting in extra hours every day to meet targets set by President Emmerson Mnangagwa as a new work ethic takes root in government. Mnangagwa took over just months away from an election in which he will be the ruling Zanu-PF candidate. With all eyes on whether he breaks with the past failures of former president Robert Mugabe's reign, and little time to revamp a shattered economy marked by empty banks and silent factories, the new government has a huge task on their hands.
