Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe Fires Vice President

0

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe fired Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Monday, the government said, as the battle between Mnangagwa and Mugabe’s wife Grace to succeed the veteran leader intensified.

“(President) Mugabe has exercised his powers to relieve honourable vice president E.D. Mnangagwa of his position as vice president,” Information Minister Simon Khaya Moyo told a press briefing in Harare, accusing him of “disloyalty”.

Mugabe’s dramatic move came after a weekend of high drama between Mnangagwa and Grace after which Mugabe appeared to finally back his wife in the succession race.
