The post became vacant following the death of John Nkomo last year and will be filled at the Zanu PF congress in December.

Addressing a two-day induction workshop for the Zanu PF Matabeleland North provincial executive at Elangeni Training Centre in Bulawayo at the weekend, Mpofu said he hoped that Khaya Moyo would take up the position.

Mpofu’s sentiments also indicated that he and Khaya Moyo, who was the guest of honour and gave a keynote address at the workshop, had smoked the peace pipe after openly clashing at a politburo meeting in front of President Robert Mugabe in 2012.

Mpofu said the Matabeleland region was not in support of factionalism in Zanu PF as they were not interested in the presidency of the ruling party.

He said the region was aware of the party’s protocols and procedures and would rather concentrate on what they could achieve, which was the Vice-Presidency.

“The best we can do is to land the Second Vice-President’s post and we are hoping that maybe Khaya Moyo will land that position,” Mpofu said, turning to Khaya Moyo, who responded with a chuckle.

“We sat down with Khaya Moyo and said let us look at what we can achieve. We are not concerned about things that are beyond us. Why should we be bothered?”
Mpofu said even during the liberation war, after training as fighters, they were given commanders to lead them and they never questioned leadership, but simply obeyed.

Khaya Moyo declined to comment on Mpofu’s pronouncements when reached for comment yesterday.

Before his weekend statement, Mpofu had been considered as a dark horse in the race to fill the vacant Vice-Presidency although Khaya Moyo, by virtue of his position in the party hierarchy, was always the front runner.

  4. With the wealth that Marange has amassed over the years, l can truly understand his lack of ambition for the presidency. But then he must speak for himself as lm sure Khaya Moyo & others would beg to disagree

  5. For most people in Zimbabwe it just does not make much difference whether jabulani Sibanda , Chinotimba , Mahofa or whoever becomes vice president, the suffering will continue. We just need to pension all the ZANU-PF leaders, give them amnesy for stolen millions and request that they dont set foot in government again. We can start afresh with new people who can make a difference. What we have are theives masquerading as leaders Nx!1

  7. This statement should serve as a clarion call to our newsman that parroting a statement for years without basic facts does not serve the public but careful research into what is going on in the party does…Please say no, to lazy journalism and yes to hard work. This is the only way to enhance your reputations…It is like newsmen are going back to nonsense of yesterday like ‘the education system is churning out 300 000 school leavers with nothing to do every year’ and at the height of aids ‘200 000 people are dying evey week’ or this one…’the president is critically ill’. It appears all the media needs is one lazy functionary to trot out a number and all the newsmen in the land begin to parrot this without question. In the midst of our current crisis what we need is a media which will dig DEEP not scratch the surface and after this prompty to go into a drug induced coma.

  8. Sounds to me like Mpofu is saying Ndebele people or those from Matabeleland should not aim higher for the Presidential post and should be happy playing second fiddle. That to me is tribalism and what makes it worse is the fact that he is attacking himself and his kin which is very unfortunate to say the least. Or is he just content being part of the gravy train?

  9. thats being psychologically defeated!!1 second vice president why NOT first or presidency lina Mandebele. please understand me correctly am not trying to be tribal about the whole issue. am not a Ndebele but I dont believe that this tribe is not capable to lead this country
