President Emerson Mnangagwa has with immediate effect dismissed incarcerated Tourism Minister, Prisca Mupfumira from her duties. 

Mupfumira is currently in remand prison and is facing charges of criminal abuse of office.

In a letter signed by the Chief Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet, Dr Misheck Sibanda, Mupfumira was fired for “conduct inappropriate for a Government Minister."

Mupfumira was recently arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission for alleged abuse of office.
