President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba has said that the July 30 elections are about confirming Mnangagwa as president and not about choosing him. Writing in the state-owned Herald newspaper, Charamba says,

The impending July 30 polls will be about confirming ED Mnangagwa for Presidency, not choosing him for the same.

A ballot-mediated pronouncement and confirmation that what started in the portentous month of November 2017, must now be placed onto a democratic plinth, so it “flowers” into the full-blown Second Republic.

…. Whatever the opposition might think, Zimbabwe’s polls are not about looking for a President; they are about assessing him.

…I get the sense that ED knows history will judge him by how well he ushers in and consolidates the Second Republic, never by how easily he is confirmed as Zimbabwe’s second elected Executive President after July 30…His maiden five-year term after July 30 will mark the birth of the Second Republic, which must occupy the higher end of the middle-income band, its well-educated and skilled citizens daily going to work, leading healthy, secure lives, all in a well-infrastructured country which gets internationally acclaimed as a respected and incorruptible member of the global family of nations.

Happy confirmation Mister President!
