President Emmerson Mnangagwa says half-day workshops will be organised to enable all cabinet ministers to adequately acquaint themselves with the essential components of the 100 day cycle, the integrated results based management system, the rapid results approach and the executive dashboard.
Speaking at the inaugural cabinet meeting of the second republic in Harare today, President Mnangagwa said a similar exercise will be conducted for permanent secretaries and other government officials.
He said under the new arrangement, each portfolio minister should identify a minimum of five quick- win and high impact projects in order that work on them commences in earnest, adding that where appropriate, it is permissible to go beyond the five, subject to approval by cabinet.
President Mnangagwa also said the approach will entail four or five ministers making presentations during the course of a cabinet meeting until the 100-day cycle ends.
He said the decision taken by cabinet will be communicated to the nation every Wednesday after a cabinet meeting and the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting services will issue a press statement in the presence of the Chief Secretary and the implementing ministers.
President Mnangagwa said this will help cabinet ministers entrench transparency and a culture of responsiveness as the government seeks to transform the quality of life of all people.
