Paul Nyathi|Besides all the accolades that President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s chief of protocol Munyaradzi Kajese received following his resignation from the President’s office, he goes away with the tag of being one of those people who unceremoniously turned against former President Robert Mugabe when he was kicked out of office in a military coup in November 2017.
Kajese resigned after a career spanning over three decades in the presidency and was one of former president Robert Mugabe’s top aides who found accommodation in the new regime of President Emmerson Mnangagwa following the coup.
Jonathan Moyo, one of Mugabe’s former ministers now living in exile, last month claimed Mugabe “was betrayed by aides who turned traitors in the November 2017 military coup”. The others were Mugabe’s former spokesman George Charamba and Chief Cabinet Secretary Misheck Sibanda.
Kajese retired after reaching the retirement age of 65 years.
Chitsaka Chipaziwa, Zimbabwe’s ambassador to Geneva, Switzerland, is expected to take over from Kajese.
