Mnangagwa Close Aide Eyes Zaka East Constituency

Jethro Munangi (36), a close aide to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, is reportedly mulling contesting the Zaka East Constituency in the 2023 elections.

The seat is currently held by Clemence Chiduwa who is the Deputy Minister of Finance and Economic Development.

The Mirror reported sources as saying that Munangi has already drafted a proposed template for the development of Zaka East.

According to the sources, the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) feels that the MPs who represented Zaka East before did not have the people at heart.

Munangi intends to unlock the district’s agricultural potential using the Manjirenji Dam which is one of the largest water bodies in Masvingo, the sources further claim.

He also believes that there are gold deposits in the Chiromo area in Zaka that can be used to create employment and catalyse development.

When called for a comment, Munangi told The Mirror that it was not the right time to make such an announcement given his sensitive post.

He, however, said he like any other citizen has the right to participate in any political contestation

According to The Mirror, Munangi attended Matara Primary in the area before proceeding to Mashoko and Mwenezi high schools.

He did War and Strategic Studies at the University of Zimbabwe before joining the spy agency.
