A Harare Zanu PF legislator Terence Mukupe has advised the citizens to stop panicking over the appointment of Ignatius Chombo as the new minister of Finance saying he must be given a chance as the president might have seen something which people would not see because they have worked together for too long.

"I've had calls, messages, whatsapps from just about everyone from my former colleagues i.e. At least 4 bank Chief Executive Officers, 8 chairman's of ZSE listed firms, academics and ordinary Zimbabweans on my take on Hon Dr Chombos appointment as new Minister of Finance and whether he can be in the same mould as legends like the late Ariston Chambati," Mukupe said.

"My answer is very simple, the President saw something in him that we might all be struggling to see but we have to remind ourselves that they have worked together for so long and they know each other well. So no need to panic, let us give Hon Dr Chombo the benefit of the doubt and give him a chance.... Let's wish him well in his new position and hope he will be the first Finance Minister since my late great uncle BTG Chidzero to usher in a budget surplus in our economy."

Mugabe reshuffled cabinet posts  and assigned ministers to various few portfolios.on Monday.
