War veterans’ leader Victor Matemadanda says Movement for Democratic Change leader Nelson Chamisa should get basic economics right before the can think of debating Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front leader President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Over a week ago, the Labour and Public Service Minister Petronella Kagonye fired the National Social Security Authority chairman Robin Vela, which then appointed as an independent non-executive director to an investee company a figure closely related to the new Emmerson Mnangagwa administration.
Former Movement for Democratic Change vice-president Thokozani Khupe was today recalled from Parliament but her colleague Obert Gutu said they had instructed constitutional expert and lawyer Lovemore Madhuku to lodge an urgent chamber application seeking an order to set aside the recall.
The headline in the Zimbabwe Herald could not have made it clearer: “Police tighten noose on Grace Mugabe.” The newspaper, for 37 years the mouthpiece of Robert Mugabe’s government, is now the voice of the new President, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
A little known opposition party called the Complete Knockdown of the Establishment which is led by Gastaff Kativu has gone to court to bar President Emmerson Mnangagwa from proclaiming elections because he has no authority to do so.
Exiled former Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo says media reference to the National Patriotic Front as Mugabe’s party is a telling and significant recognition that the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front died with the military intervention that brought Emmerson Mnangagwa to power.
Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi, who is also the Leader of the House and can therefore answer any question on any ministry, yesterday insisted that President Emmerson Mnangagwa never promised to end the cash crisis in the country in the first 100 days when he assumed office in November last year.
The media is awash with news that former President Robert Mugabe will be summoned to testify on Zimbabwe’s missing diamonds before the Parliamentary Committee on Mines.
