Sources who spoke to NewsDay said that first lady Grace Mugabe demanded Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s firing because she is afraid of what could happen to her if President Robert Mugabe leaves him in power.
Said a source:
She demanded that Mnangagwa be fired, indicating she was scared of what could happen to her if the President were to leave him in power. Grace accused Mnangagwa of getting support from war veterans, expelled youth and getting loud cheers from party supporters at rallies.
There was also a plan to stop Mnangagwa from attending the Zanu-PF youth meeting held on Saturday. A press conference was also arranged, at which Mnangagwa was to be denounced but was called off after only three provincial chairpersons Manicaland (Mubuso Chinguno), Harare (Edison Takataka) and Mashonaland Central (Isaiah Mandaza) agreed to the plan.
