President Mugabe yesterday fired Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa from the position of Vice President of the country for, among various reasons, disloyalty and conduct inconsistent with his official duties.

“In accordance with the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment Number 20 Act of 2013, Section 329, 6th Schedule, Paragraph 14, Sub-paragraph 2, His Excellency the President Cde R.G. Mugabe has exercised his powers to relieve Honourable Vice President E.D. Mnangagwa, of his position as Vice President of the Republic of Zimbabwe with immediate effect.

“It had become evident that his conduct in the discharge of his duties had become inconsistent with his official responsibilities. The Vice President has consistently and persistently exhibited traits of disloyalty, disrespect, deceitfulness and unreliability.

“He has also demonstrated little probity in the execution of his duties,” Minister Khaya Moyo said in the statement.

Section 329, 6th Schedule, Paragraph 14, Sub-paragraph 2 of the Constitution says: “Without delay the person elected as President in any election referred to in Sub-paragraph (1) must appoint not more than two Vice-Presidents, who hold office at his or her pleasure.’’

      • haiwawo

        The real one was purged systematically eons ago so that RGM had yes people all around.

        The silence too from one who was breathing fire only days ago is telling. He and his missus have overplayed their hand. Those the couple targeted have refused to roll over and instead have called his bluff and now the First Couple is stuck.

        All they can do now is to use unthinking surrogates like Chikwinya and Chimene who are outdoing each other, but the wise ones, vakateya kwoenda mhepo, are silent.

        toothless indeed.the guy had enough time to be at the helm but lacked balls to challenge Mugabe.enter Gire and she is calling the shots now and has run rings around the lizard.cant blame her as she has long discovered that her husband is surrounded by chickens.no sympathies from me to small lizard .outfoxed and relegated to the realms of a pit toilet where he belongs.if he had balls and smart as we were led to belief, he would have been president ages ago.1 dinosaur down,pass on the pop-corn please ,wont loose any sleep over him

      • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

        Economic sanctions imposed by the West are to blame for our current economic nadir. But the current political dynamics in our revolutionary party are not knew. Those familiar with our party history , even before our sojourn in Moza, are familiar with purging when there is no more room for comradeship. Politics is an art of the possible.

        • Cde Development

          Professor i am also a firm supporter of ZANU PF but take not that sanctions are not the only trouble causer. Corruption has also worsened our situation. Our President openly admitted that 15 billion US Dollars disappeared and that was not sanctions related. Iran is under worse sanctions from the UN Security Council but there are busy carrying out space missions (flying rockets into space) they also manufacture cars and tractors. My take is that even if we have sanctions the rot that we have now is not entirely caused by sanctions.1. Is it wise for us as a party to be gathering 8million US for the congress
          2. The greatest campaign is to deliver effectively to the people consistently and genuinely, not to offer people hand-outs to lure votes @ the last minute.
          3.What is a revolution without principles? During the armed struggle principles were in place, respected and adhered to and that led to Independence. After independence all principles abolished, but why? Let us not hide behind the finger let there be transparency and integrity.

But as a war vet, I retreat to my plot…to farm using the command agriculture inputs given out under his supervision, and i think he was a good servant…trying to turn against Mugabe after 52 years? this is something else.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me”.

Ngoma ndiyo ndiyo vakomana! Nothing is going to change. A mugabe dynasty is in the making! Our salvation is not going to come from morgan and his coterie of clueless and greedy (and lustful) bounty hunters masquerading as opposition parliamentarians, politicians and activists!

  • Piankhi

    Now the old man will find out how loyal he thinks Zanupf is. Does he actually think Mnangagwa will sit back and take it bending over. 52 years by this ** side and ED always have taken the most disrespect from ** because of rumors from cowards within the party, not knowing ED was his only real soldier. Now just because the ** has been influenced **. Now he will see how much of the party will stay with him. He just lost all war veterans and we know the military and CIO will alway be with ED. It is time for a change. And the old man thinking people in the party will stay now. Half the party will be gone in the next 90 days. This is actually a good thing for Mnangagwa. Now he can have a fresh party without being considered unloyal because he will not boot lick like the rest of those weak cowards in Zanupf.
