Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has dismissed claims by first lady Grace Mugabe that Masvingo province ( together with Midlands) is disrespectful and needed to be restructured. Mnangwaga said that Masvingo was a sovereign province which should not be intimidated. Speaking at late Masvingo Provincial Affairs minister Shuvai Mahofa’s memorial service in Gutu on Saturday, Mnangagwa said
Masvingo is the best province, whatever anyone says. Those who castigate the province don’t know what the future holds and when things come to a head, we will try to see where each one of us stands. Zvese zviri kutaugwa zvichapera kana nyaya yaakusvika kumagumo (everything being said and happening now will soon be over).

Masvingo should not be intimidated or made inferior. Let’s do our things in unity because there is nothing wrong with standing by the people from one’s home province so that in the end you are found alongside your relatives. We are a sovereign province we deserve respect.
He also gave a warning to his rivals saying:
If you try to catch a fish by putting a snare on a rock outside water, you will realise that you won’t catch it
