Ibbo Mandaza says the battle for succession in ZANU-PF is a media invention


Academic, publisher and politician, Ibbo Mandaza, has brushed off reports about the battle for succession in the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front said to be pitting Vice-President Joice Mujuru against Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa as “an invention of the media than the reality”. Mandaza said Zimbabwe was already in a post-Mugabe era with his ZANU-PF facing no challenge at all from the opposition which he said had been “washed up”. Mandaza said any change between now and 2018 would have to come from ZANU-PF so Zimbabweans should rally behind the party. “We should not despair. We are already in the post-Mugabe era. We need to prepare arduously for that post-Mugabe era. If the transition is constitutional, it will therefore be peaceful. That point needs to be emphasised,” Mandaza said.
