Yesterday, war veterans and senior Zanu PF officials told the Daily News that they were aware of the plot to limit President Mnangagwa to one term in office.
Mashonaland West provincial chairperson Ziyambi Ziyambi said there were Zanu-PF members who are causing price hikes in order to sabotage Mnangagwa. Said Ziyambi:
We are saying let the president serve his two terms. There are some people who are moving in their own direction, who are not supporting our president within the party. We also know that there are some people within the party who are causing price hikes in order to sabotage our president and we are not happy with this. Some of them rush to be party members, trying to cover up their ill-gotten wealth and all these issues are going to be dealt with soon.
War veterans’ secretary-general Victor Matemadanda also confirmed to the Daily News that some people within the party were aiming to dislodge Mnangagwa before the end of his current term. Said Matemadanda:
The country is not led by opinions of certain individuals but by the Constitution. We have a Constitution which says the president must serve two terms and … there is no need to talk about succession now because the president is still serving his first term. It is not about the opinion of certain drunken individuals, but the Constitution.
