President Mugabe‘s Nephew and Minister of Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Patrick Zhuwao has dismissed Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s presidential aspirations. He accused Mnangagwa and his supporters of intimidating supporters. Zhuwao further warned that in the event of Mnangwagwa becoming president people will be wiped out.
Zhuwao told the Standard newspaper that:
They (war veterans) said that he (Mnangagwa) must succeed the president and if he does not, there will be blood on the floor.
…So when you threaten me, I will definitely look at at his (Mnangagwa’s) envisaged government that if people oppose him he would kill them, and that to me is damaging. People must be allowed to make choices without being intimidated with death or war, like what the so-called supporters of VP Mnangagwa are doing.
