President Mugabe has, with immediate effect, reshuffled some permanent secretaries, with former Ambassador to Japan Mr Stuart Comberbach being assigned to the post of Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet.

Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda said this in a statement yesterday. Mr Comberbach is a long-serving senior Government official, with much of his service as a diplomat but including a posting as Secretary for Industry and International Trade.

He is taking up the post in the Office of the President and Cabinet straight from being a Dean of the African Diplomatic Corps in Japan. Dr Sylivia Utete Masango has been moved from the post of Secretary in the Civil Service Commission to the post of Secretary for Primary and Secondary Education.

She once served as the Secretary for Ministry of Women's Affairs, Gender and Community Development during the inclusive Government, apart from holding other posts in the civil service before.

Mrs Constance Chigwamba, who is being replaced by Dr Masango, has been moved to the post of Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet.
Before becoming the Secretary for Primary and Secondary Education, Mrs Chigwamba was Secretary with the Ministry of Education, Sport, Arts and Culture.

Dr Desire Sibanda takes over as the head of Fiscal Policy and Investment in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development from the post of Secretary in the Civil Service Commission.

He once served as the Secretary for the Ministry of Economic Planning and Investment Promotion during the inclusive Government.
