Grace Mugabe confronts Mnangagwa, openly tells him to quit as VP

Sources who spoke to NewsDay said that First Lady Grace Mugabe confronted Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa during a briefing ahead of a Zanu PF youth league national assembly meeting in Harare on Saturday and openly told him to quit over allegations of promoting factionalism and plotting President Robert Mugabe’s ouster.

A source said:

During the briefing, Grace drew parallels between Mnangagwa and Mujuru, accusing the VP of plotting against the President. She accused Mnangagwa of holding a grudge against (Higher Education minister) Jonathan Moyo, arguing he has sought to have him arrested each time he is acting president. The First Lady actually demanded that Mnangagwa should have been expelled instead of youths and war veterans’ leaders.

According to the sources, Mnangagwa did not respond to Grace Mugabe and said he would rather reserve his comments out of respect for her.
