By A Correspondent- President Emmerson Mnangagwa has confirmed that there is a plot from within the ruling Zanu-PF party to unseat him, but dared his detractors to dream on.
Addressing a Midlands provincial co-ordinating committee meeting in Gweru on Saturday, Mnangagwa said he was aware that some members from his faction-torn party were burning the midnight oil plotting to dethrone him, but warned that their machinations would be crushed as he was firmly in control of both the ruling party and government.
“Go on and mislead each other. You can even ask your wife to chant your slogan saying forward with my husband. But when you go out of the house, you begin to say forward with Zanu-PF, forward with central committee of Zanu PE Forget about those ambitions,” said Mnangagwa, who rose to power after toppling his long time boss, the late Robert Mugabe, through a 2017 military coup.
