VP Mphoko now Acting President

Herald Reporter
Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko has with effect from today assumed the capacity of Acting President until the end of the month, when President Mugabe returns from his traditional annual leave.

Cde Mphoko is taking over from his counterpart, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who had been acting in the same capacity from the time President Mugabe commenced his annual leave in December last year.

Information, Media and Broadcasting Services secretary Mr George Charamba confirmed the development in a statement yesterday.

“Honourable Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko assumes the capacity of Acting President from tomorrow (today) 10th January, 2017, in the absence of His Excellency the President R.G Mugabe, who is still on his traditional annual leave,” said Mr Charamba.

“Vice President Mphoko will act up to the end of this month when His Excellency the President is expected back in the Office.”

    Constitutionally , its the one Acting. But why are you compassing our dear leader`s incapacity? Stop evil hallucinating. Are you in God`s laboratory? Don`t you know our party and national constitutions . Takeover is a military insinuation. One will act while the party and national constitutional processes take course. Koinga zviri pachena ,sendebvu dza madzibaba wemweya mutsvene!

    Uuuh? It was Provincial Minister Cde Chidarikire who claimed the “Acting First Lady“ gaffe? Vakadarikira constitution mufunge! Na nhasi hamheno kuti vanga darikirezve??????? Ini zii zvangu.

      Cde Faber bestowed the “Acting First Lady” title in her presence and she did not deny it or correct him. Ngwena did not deny it or rebuke him for days while the fires of outrage burned around him.

      Nor did Ngwena deny or correct Cde Josaya for blasphemously saying he is known as the “Son of Man”.

      You will know Jesus did not deny his divinity, and allowed others to claim that on His behalf. By not denying it He proclaimed to all the world that He was what His supporters claimed He was. See the parallel?

    Cde, they are not leaders but rulers. Leadership and rulership is totally different.
    George Washington was a leader, he led his troops. Not sent them.
    Leaders use their hospitals to show confidence in their work, not other nations’ hospitals.
    Leaders groom their replacements.
    Leaders set examples and sacrifice themselves first for what they believe in.
    Leaders will not let corruption ruin their nations.
    Leaders will not take companies which others built but they will build their own companies.
    Leaders will not buy diamonds and ask a refund into another account.
    Leaders will not take houses of their fellow citizens to settle a transactional difference.
    Leaders will not fight happiness in killing their citizens, irrespective of skin colour, tribe and political difference.
    Leaders have tolerance and assist those whom they lead.
    Leaders eat last after their followers have ate.
    Leaders share equally with everyone.
    Leaders accept their failure and try to correct it
    Leaders accept different views.
    Show me examples we have to emulate from these?

    He didn’t say anything that you attribute him saying. So maybe cut down on the caffeine, absorb the message, and stop it with the 19th century marxist rhetoric. Your country is burning because of a sick old man and the tart he cheated on his first wife with. Face facts.

  • Tom

    Did god tell you that?

  • Gamba ReManyika

    Proper headline should read: “VP Mphoko pretending to be President”.

  • ddt

    the last person to be the acting pres will take over

    Who is Johnso? I am not Johnso. Your foolish suspicion is wrong. A leader has to be elected ,not groomed. Who groomed the current President? ZANU PF is not a company ufunge. The people will elect in due course from a number of candidates.
