Plot To Oust Mnangagwa Aborted As Conspirators Fail To Gain Sufficient Numbers For Impeachment

Plans to impeach President Emmerson Mnangagwa were allegedly abandoned after the rebels failed to gather enough MPs to support impeachment proceedings according to a report.

A Mnangagwa loyalist, former Deputy Minister for Finance, Terence Mukupe reportedly said that the plan failed because the President received “words of comfort” from “ZIPRA cadres”. This is thought to be a veiled reference to Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander Phillip Valerio Sibanda, who fought the liberation war on the side of the Zimbabwe People’s Revolutionary Army (ZIPRA).

President Mnangagwa on Sunday cut short his visit to Europe. He was expected to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos but instead, he chose to rush back home. One of Mnangagwa’s firm backers, Gokwe-Nembudziya MP, Justice Mayor Wadyajena tweeted early on Monday morning:

They threatened to kill me and harm my family. I stand by @edmnangagwa and wish they knew ours isn’t just a political relationship. However they try, we’ll NEVER QUIT nor be intimidated. The plot is foiled, they lack numbers for impeachment and the devil isn’t @ProfJNMoyo but amongst us!

A ZANU PF insider who spoke to ZimLive.com said that the threat to impeach Mnangagwa did not go away. Said the source:

It is quite evident that the threat to Mnangagwa’s presidency is, on the face of it, a political one, but the drivers in the background are security men in the military. The truth is that even if PV Sibanda aligns with Mnangagwa at this particular moment, the middle and lower ranks in the military are openly despondent with Mnangagwa’s presidency and the threat won’t go away.

  1. Mnangagwa must go because he failed the country of Zimbabwe and this dirty acts of killing he is doing is totally wrong aswell he is loosing respect from pple of Zimbabwe and the world

  2. Zimbabwean soldiers and army are well trained to kill their own people not to protect them and it shows how stupid enough they are to deny something with evidence…. Enough is enough now it’s tym for the world to act on what is going on especially in Zimbabwe where they kill innocent people for protesting against their rights

  3. And in your view it should step down and be replaced by who – MDC-A I suppose Keep dreaming mate. Which constitution are you using. Not the Zimbabwean one of course.

  4. MDC opposition ask for funds and train your own soldiers, organize camps to protect the civilians.Mr ED mnangangwa is using the old way of ruling the country and he disappointed his people

  5. The past controversial elections in Zimbabwe had a community of 23 contesting Presidents meaning the 1980 monolithic dispensation still holding fort may by great orders have become quite obsolete and out of context; and typically a liability to the peaceful and progressive Zimbabweans who have lost a special nitch in a highly contested global village.
