AMHVoices: Mugabe has as good as anointed Grace to succeed him

IN response to War vets no pushovers, Mutsvangwa tells Sekeramayi: A 93-year-old person like President Robert Mugabe will always say the truth.

By C Moyo,Our Reader

He told all and sundry at the Bindura rally on Saturday that: “I do not want people to say I handpicked my wife for the Presidency.”

That was the truth and nothing else.

In other words, he was admitting that there is another way of handpicking his wife Grace to succeed him, that is at the Zanu PF congress.

Everyone knows what happens at these congresses.

The women’s league will throw its weight behind its boss, Dr Amai, and wait and see the drama unfold.

Tell me, who will openly nominate Defence minister Sydney Sekeramayi or Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa at the congress?

But if someone nominates Grace, not even one person will object.

It is a pity that Mnangagwa failed to execute his plan well. He took too long to do it and should blame none other than himself.

His name is spoiled in Zanu PF cycles.

The army has been silenced and very soon the war veterans will be silenced.

All these things are pointing to one thing: Grace is the heir apparent.

The next few weeks will be very interesting for political onlookers.

It is when the First Family will unleash their grand plan as the Zanu PF political configuration gathers momentum.

History has a tendency of repeating itself.

The music that was playing towards the 2014 congress that saw Vice-President Joice Mujuru being dumped is now playing loud.

Mnangagwa benefited from that chaos and now it seems is fast becoming a casualty.

Chinhu ichi chine vene vacho (This project has its owners).

We will watch from a distance as the crocodile is shoved from the dam.

Watch the space!

  2. Comment…Mwari vachiri kubvumira. Kana vakati zvaguma. Hapana anorambaa.

    1. Chinodakufa Chinoendera

      I like this. Yes one day Mwari vachati NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! At that point hapana acharamba.

  3. Comment…How about other ethnic groups, why is the speculation about presedent always around people from the east,how about the Mnkombwes, Nares, Nleyas, Khumalos etc of this country.Dont they also qualify to lead this country

    1. They are free to contest elections and get elected to the presidency. Power is not given on a silver platter.

  4. very shallow

  5. l thought Zimbabwe was a republic,on what grounds does a nominee be ruled out as a leader, yes we have witnessed the iron fist type of administration, be that as it may, we refuse to have our decisions and lives be shaped by slow approaching nominees of the after life. This great state was built by the people, it stands firm today because of the people, it strives through the worst and yields spectacular individuals from universities every year because of the people, this land is built on bodies of comrades who had dreams of brighter days for the people,therefore,all decisions on who will succeed the thrown will be solely dependent on the people.

  6. Enjoying the circus…

  7. JOKE OF THE YEAR, Zim politics maOne

  8. zimbabwe is ruled by a demon and as long as people in their naivety still thinks they can deal with zanu pf using political means, then we are doomed. Jesus said ‘zverudzi urwu hazvibvi chete asi nekutsanya nekunyengetera kuzhinji’. that is what zimbabweans should do rather than bicker about who has annointed who..we need the KING of Kings’ grace to see this demon and goblins exorcised.

  9. I totally agree with the writer. Following is the sequence of events:1. Come congress. 2. One pre-selected member from the women’s league nominates Grace. 3. Another pre-selected member seconds the motion. 4.All the women break into pre-choreographed song and dance. 5. A pre-selected someone shouts “Mhunhu wese kuna amai”.6. There is an appropriate loud response 7. A second pre-selected person shouts “Pasi nevapanduki”. 8. There is another appropriate loud response.9. There is general shaking of hands and approval noises. 10. Grace is duly appointed!!
