In an interview with The Times, Emmerson Mnangagwa Jr narrates how his father President Emmerson Mnangagwa managed to escape after being fired by his predecessor Robert Mugabe.
He narrates how they maneuvered through an area with landmines in the dark. Mnangagwa Jr also narrates how after making it through the area that had landmines, his cellphone attracted a Renamo rebel who pointed an AK 47 at his father’s head. He says President Mnangagwa bribed the rebel with $2 000 cash.
He says that his father met with Vice President Constantino Chiwenga when he was still General. Part of the story in The Times reads:
Mnangagwa was frequently visited, however, by General Constantino Chiwenga, the head of the Zimbabwean military, who “would come and offer his shoulder to Dad”. The two men had known each other since the 1970s liberation war against the Rhodesian government. Chiwenga would play a crucial role in the endgame of this drama.
