An internet publication, Spotlight Zimbabwe, which claims to have information on good authority has said that President Mnangagwa’s days as leader of the country are numbered, with power set to be transferred to the military in 2020.
The publication claims that it has communication from a “Zimbabwean military attache stationed in Beijing at the time when former Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) Commander and now vice president, Rtd General Constantino Chiwenga, visited China between November 8 to November 10 2017”
The attache apparently told Spotlight Zimbabwe
“Mnangagwa’s days in office are now numbered. Most Zimbabweans are not aware that Mnangagwa’s tenure as president was discussed before the November coup that toppled Mugabe. An elite delegation of military officers travelling with Chiwenga met with Chinese generals, who were told that the current leader will be in power for no more than three years. Our military sees him (Mnangagwa) as a stopgap measure for stability, and he is just but a figurehead with no real power. His presidency expires in 2020, and we are going to see a retired general taking over soon to finish his term, like what Mnangagwa did to Mugabe. The military general coming in will then lay the ground for a civilian leader agreed upon by the Joint Operations Command. They already have four former ministers names who served under Mugabe in mind. This is the shock you people can’t see coming.
The report by Spotlight Zimbabwe also claims the army is “not happy with Mnangagwa’s failure to fix the economy and that he has allegedly been signing off the country’s mineral resources and land assets for a song without their approval.”
