The head of Zimbabwe’s military, who led the de facto coup that ended Robert Mugabe’s 37-year rule last month, is set to retire.

The 61-year old Constantino Chiwenga is the top contender to become deputy to Emmerson Mnangagwa, one of two posts the new president has promised to fill in the next few days.

Army Commander Phillip Sibanda will succeed Chiwenga.

Mnangagwa, who was sworn in on November the 24th, also appointed Major General Edzai Chimonyo, Zimbabwe’s ambassador to Tanzania, to army commander and promoted a number of other senior army officers to major general.
