A high ranking source who spoke to the weekly publication, the Zimbabwe Independent, said,

A number of workers at Mugabe’s home in Zvimba who were being paid by government were fired from their jobs. Most of them stay in Zvimba…The same applies to labourers at his Highfield farm. They were also fired from their jobs.

Deputy Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Ray Ndhukula referred all questions to Mugabe saying,

The best person to comment on that matter would be the former president.

This comes at a time Mugabe has launched a major offensive against his successor saying that Mnangagwa is illegitimate as he came to power through a military coup.

    President Emmerson D. Mnangagwa has noted recent remarks made to the media by former President Cde Robert Gabriel Mugabe. On 21 November, 2017, former President Mugabe tendered his resignation in terms of Section 96, Sub-Section 1, of the Constitution of Zimbabwe. He is entitled to express himself freely, as is the case for any private citizen.

    The Zimbabwe Government continues to honour all its obligations towards the former President’s welfare and benefits, as provided for under the Constitution of Zimbabwe. The nation has moved on. Our focus at this time shall remain on preparing for free, fair and credible elections in 2018. This is a key step in the immense task at hand, which is to lift our people from the effects of years of severe economic regression and international isolation.

    Issued by the Office of the President and Cabinet


  2. I think the president should focus on his task at hand, That is seeing that the country is put in to its rightful place internationally and the people enjoy their freedom economically. This country cannot be a denasty. Lets lwave Mugabe alone he is under presure from Grace and G40 cabal.
