Joice Mujuru Refutes Reports That ED Offered Her Chiwenga’s VP Post

Former vice president Joice Mujuru on Thursday refuted claims that she was offered her job back by President Emmerson Mnangagwa to replace the indisposed Constantino Chiwenga.

Mujuru asserted that former minister Jonathan Moyo, who used Twitter to make the claims, was “surely misinformed”. Moyo however, maintained his position, writing:

There’s no need to push the envelope here unless it becomes necessary. I understand your position. It’s too early to come out. But it’s a known fact that the two of you met recently and that he sorted your pension issues out, before making the offer.

Moyo further claimed that the process of Mnangagwa’s ascendancy started in 2004, got nasty in 2008, cost Solomon Mujuru’s life in 2011 and ended with Joice’s ouster as VP in Dec 2014.

Mujuru was fired from her position as vice president by then President Robert Mugabe in December 2014. Mnangagwa, Grace Mugabe, military and top party leaders including Moyo coalesced against Mujuru and her Gamatox allies leading to their ouster from ZANU PF.
