Former Deputy Minister for Finance and Economic Development Terence Mukupe said that he is worried about the events likely to unfold in the next 72 hours. Writing on Microblogging site Twitter on Saturday, Mukupe did not disclose the exact details of what will happen, though speculation is rife that some ZANU PF MPs are plotting to impeach President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Wrote Mukupe:
I’m worried with what’s going on. The citizens are blind to what’s really going on. The next 72hrs is going to be crucial regarding the path we are going to take as a nation. Chokwadi chichabuda (the truth will come out). President Mnangagwa is not the issue. Viva Zimbabwe.
A ZANU PF insider who spoke to ZimLive about the plans to oust President Mnangagwa said:
There are two things I would want you to know. First, you must realise that the Constitution provides the basis of impeachment and such basis must be fulfilled before impeachment proceedings begin.
Second, our Constitution provides a tool, an instrument to chuck out from Parliament any member who we think is not Zanu PF anymore.
