Addressing journalists at his Blue Roof residence in Harare on Thursday, former President Robert Mugabe said he fought hard to save President Emmerson Mnangagwa from being hanged.
Mnangagwa is on record saying he was supposed to be hanged by the Rhodesian administration for his involvement in politics but was found to be below 18 by then. However Mugabe said he worked hard to save Mnangagwa whose life was threatened with hanging. Said Mugabe:
I always had Emmerson Mnangagwa. I brought him into Government, but I never thought he whom I had nurtured and brought into Government and whose life I had worked so hard in prison to save as he was threatened with hanging, would one day be the man that would turn against me.
