News:Mphoko Says Mkwananzi is lost & should not blame Mugabe for economic situation

<vote /> Speaking at an event where he donated 3 000-day-old chicks to residents at Iminyela Grounds yesterday, Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko said President Robert Mugabe is in full control of the country and is doing his work as mandated. His remarks follow a Constitutional Court application filed by Tajamuka/Sesijikile spokesperson Promise Mkwananzi, who is seeking an order compelling President Mugabe to step down on allegations that he has failed to properly run the country.

Mphoko said,

I find it strange for someone to say President Mugabe is not doing his work. The President is fully in control of the country and he’s doing his work as expected as the Head of State. This young man called Mkwananzi is lost. He should not be blaming the President for what is happening in the country because he [the President] is a victim too. He should confront his uncles in Britain because they’re responsible for imposing sanctions on the country and brought a lot of suffering to the people of Zimbabwe.

He also highlighted that if Mkwananzi wants to change the leadership he had to wait for the 2018 elections,

The President works hard every day and performs his duties as expected. He works from Monday to Friday and attends Cabinet meetings. He also meets various envoys and attends to all other issues that need his attention. Mkwananzi has no idea what the President’s duties are and this is a wrong channel that he’s using. We elected President into power through elections in 2013. If he wants to rule this country or someone else to take over, he knows what to do in 2018.

Mkwananzi recently filed a Constitutional Court application against Mugabe and cited Vice President and Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa as a second respondent.
