President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe has given cabinet ministers and senior government officials until the end of February to declare their assets.

Mnangagwa, 75, took power after Robert Mugabe was toppled by the military.

He immediately promised to tackle corruption, especially in public institutions.

Misheck Sibanda, chief secretary to the president and cabinet, said in a statement that it was now mandatory for cabinet ministers, their deputies, senior government officials and bosses of state-owned businesses to declare their assets.

The officials will be required to disclose details on their real estate, other property valued above 100,000, dollars and shareholdings in businesses by Feb. 28.

Mnangagwa, who is attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, the first time by a Zimbabwean president, is trying to break with past policies of Mugabe in a bid to lure foreign investment and end the country’s international pariah status.
