While addressing Zanu-PF winning candidates in Harare yesterday, President elect Emmerson Mnangagwa revealed there was a plan by some party members to make him lose the Presidential election.
Mnangagwa said measures will be taken against people who urged Zanu-PF supporters to vote for the National Assembly Members only and not the President. Said Mnangagwa:
I have been given a report showing statistics of the number of votes attained by the MP and the President in every constituency. I want to talk in general terms. There were others who were saying vote for the MP but as for the President just do what you think is good for you. We now know these people. What it shows is that such Cdes do not rely with the leadership of party. So such people should be retired and if they want to come back they should come back as full members of the party. What we want is unity from the grassroots level up to national leadership speaking one message. That is why we have party ideology. We should all follow party ideology wherever we go.
