Christopher Mutsvangwa the chair of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) has claimed that Emmerson Mnangagwa is still the Vice President of Zimbabwe and Second Secretary of Zanu-PF. Mutsvangwa alleged that Mnangagwa still holds his former positions despite being fired by President Robert Mugabe because he was never officially notified of his firing by Zanu-PF Secretary for Administration, Ignatius Chombo. Addressing a press conference called by the former freedom fighters on Monday, Mutsvangwa said:
For your own information Comrade, Mnangagwa was never fired officially, as the secretary for administration Ignatius Chombo didn’t write him a letter advising of his dismissal maybe he didn’t want his hands to be seen.
So technically the man was never fired, they then sent thugs and criminals to try and eliminate him and he had to run for his run that is what happened
