The Minister of State for National Security in the President’s Office was a non-cabinet ministerial position in the government of Zimbabwe. Notable ministers have included Didymus Mutasa, Nicholas Goche, and Emmerson Mnangagwa.[1] The minister oversaw the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO). But literally it is the CIO that controls the ministry since they say the Minister is a political appointee.

The ministry was merged with the Ministry of Defence on 30 November 2017 to become the Ministry of Defence, Security and War Veterans.
