Muchinguri speaks on reports she wants to be Vice President

Water Resources Development and Climate minister Oppah Muchinguri has responded to reports that she is eyeing to be President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Vice President. Other ministers who are reportedly eyeing the post are; Kembo Mohadi (State Security) and Obert Mpofu (Home Affairs).

Speaking to NewsDay, Muchinguri dismissed the reports and said that she would be comfortable with any position that she is given by Mnangagwa. Said Muchinguri:

Well, it’s up to the President to identify areas where I could be of help or of assistance to him. If I remain in my position, I am comfortable with it as I have always been. You will remember when we pushed hard to have a woman Vice-President, I was at the forefront campaigning, but I did not consider myself as a candidate as was the situation and case with the former First Lady (Grace Mugabe). She herself was doing everything, changing structures just to fit her personal interests. In my case, I paved way for Amai (Joice) Mujuru whom I respected because she was senior to me. So I am saying I am not a person who is greedy, who at every juncture wants a position, no. I will wait until the President decides what he wants to do with me.

Efforts by NewsDay to get comments from Mpofu and Mohadi were fruitless.
