Mphoko backs Grace's call for Mugabe to name successor6 years ago
Speaking at a Zanu-PF inter-district meeting in Bulawayo yesterday, Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko said that the First Lady Grace Mugabe is right in urging President Robert Mugabe to name a successor.
He also said that the next president will not be chosen on tribal grounds. Said Mphoko:
The First Lady is right. The President should be part of the solution to problems going on in the country with regards to who will succeed him. He should do it well and quietly through the structures. He knows how to do it. He is mature and will do it well. If you think the President is there because he is Zezuru, then you are lost. He is there because he is a leader, so was VP Nkomo. We now have people who are saying since the President is Zezuru, the next President should be Karanga. We never fought for that. That is wrong. Those who are pushing this agenda are lost; we will follow what we have always been doing. We do not work on tribal grounds. Those who want the Presidency based on whether they are Karanga, Ndebele or Vhitori can go to hell!Feedback
