Mnangagwa comments on Grace Mugabe's call for Pres Mugabe to name successor
Speaking in Parliament today (August 2), Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa commented on First Lady Grace Mugabe’s call on President Robert Mugabe to name a successor. He was responding to a question by Kuwadzana East MP Nelson Chamisa (MDC-T) who had asked if there was stability in Government and if there was stability in Government.
However Mnangagwa avoided the question and said that the issue is a Zanu-PF and not a Government issue. Said Mnangagwa:
The first point is where was the First Lady speaking? Which political party was it? We have no problem of recruiting more members into Zanu-PF. We were at a rally of a particular party, Zanu-PF, discussing issues of that political party. You have referred to Government. I am not aware of any statement relating to Government, at all. With regards to the issue of some names or some people not appearing it’s a question of being subjective whether that is true or not. You need to look at particular cases and say ‘in this particular case it should not be on page 2 but on page 1 and not on page 8 but on page 2’ and then we will deal with particular cases as they arise.
