Air Vice Marshal Shebba Shumbayaonda has replaced Perrance Shiri as Air Force boss on an acting basis, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said at the unveiling of the name change of KG VI to Josiah MagamaTongogara barracks in Harare yesterday.
Shiri is now Lands minister in President Mnangagwa's new Cabinet sworn in on Monday.
A former Air Commodore, Shumbayaonda was promoted to the rank of Air Vice Marshal in April 2011.
It is not clear who has replaced Major General Sibusiso Moyo, who appeared on State television on the morning of November 15 to announce the memorable words "the situation in our country has moved to a new level." Moyo is the new Foreign minister.
