#AMHVoices:Succession war: Mugabe playing games


The newspapers are full of stories about Zanu PF members warring over the succession race.

President Robert Mugabe must be loving it. Everyone is so embroiled in these battle stories that we are immersed in his divide and rule tactics hook, line and sinker.

There is only one successor and that is his wife First Lady Grace Mugabe. Former Vice-President Joice Mujuru was an easy target to remove. She had enough support to have challenged him at congress, but for some reason chose not to, probably because she had been given assurances by Mugabe.

Next on the list is

Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa. He has probably been told that he is definitely the successor and is gearing himself up for that position, and while he is doing so he is being hoodwinked into a sense of false security. His time is just around the corner! The smug G40 will be next.

Mugabe will create his dynasty soon.

The only way to stop us becoming a dynasty is to remove Mugabe from his throne now and the only way to do that is to impeach him. His latest blunders have proved beyond doubt that he is too old to run a country, let alone one in such dire economic straights. His focus is solely on putting his wife in the lead role, and he shows no interest in the welfare of the country.

How can he possibly propose that the solution to the energy crisis is for everyone to work nights. Is he that out of touch that he is unaware that the load shedding is so that industry can have power during the day and domestic consumers during the night?

In the interests of good governance, he should step down, but he won’t.

If he is allowed to succeed in putting Grace in the Presidential post, we are surely doomed.

Zimbabweans be scared, very scared if it comes to pass.
