Zimbabwe's President Mnangagwa To Visit Angola Friday

Zimbabwe's President Mnangagwa To Visit Angola Friday

She had hoped to replace her husband as leader, and president Robert Mugabe even started grooming her for the position.

Jonathan Moyo says the worldwide community, including the AU and the United Nations, was making a huge mistake if it legitimised a government that came to power via a coup.

His former vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, whose sacking prompted the military takeover that forced Mugabe out, was sworn in as president and the general who led the de facto coup, Constantino Chiwenga, was installed as his deputy.

Moyo's comments were made during an interview on BBC's HardTalk with anchor Zeinab Badawi, on Thursday morning. "There were 11 of us at (Kasukuwere's) residence when the residence was attacked", Moyo said.

"You have to be applying a Banana Republic model to say he resigned", he charged.

Moyo was the fiercely combative mouthpiece for a faction in the ruling Zanu-PF party that opposed Mnangagwa and backed Mugabe's 52-year old wife, Grace, to succeed him. "You can not send the arsonists to be the fire brigade", he said.

Kevin Gates Released From Prison, For Real This Time
Early Wednesday morning (Jan. 10), embattled rapper Kevin Gates was released from an IL state prison, TMZ reports . George Zimmerman followed and murdered an innocent 17 year old Trayvon Martin and was allowed to use the law.

Zanu-PF spokesman, Simon Khaya Moyo, announced the party's preferred candidate, Emmerson Mnangagwa, had tasked the revolutionary party to ensure a landslide victory in the face of a challenge by a coalition by opposition parties. "It can't be a crime in a constitutional democracy", he said.

It was his first appearance in the media since he fled the country mid November a year ago.

"This was not Mickey Mouse stuff".

The initiative is meant to legitimize the ongoing political transition in Zimbabawe following the resignation of long-serving former president Robert Mugabe in November, 2017, at the insistence of the ruling Zanu PF party and the subsequent swearing in of Mnagagwa on Nov 24 as interim president.

Other reports say that the Zimbabwean government has written the Kenyan government to send Moyo back to Zimbabwe because it believes the former minister is in that country.

Since his resignation Moyo and his close allies have escaped into exile, claiming to have escaped assassination attempts by the military.
