Mnangagwa to visit Namibia

Mnangagwa to visit Namibia

Mnangagwa, former deputy to Zimbabwean long-time ruler Robert Mugabe, took over the reins late a year ago after the former resigned amidst pressure from the military and threats of impeachment by parliament.

Mrs Mugabe was personally capped by her husband and then-president Robert Mugabe, who was also the chancellor of the University of Zimbabwe.

A few days later, the Zimbabwe military intervened through "Operation Restore Legacy", which was enacted on November 14 and saw Mugabe being kicked out of Zanu-PF and resigning from government, with Mnangagwa returning to Zimbabwe to take over the reins.

Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi has dismissed as untrue news reports that Zimbabwe's former Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo is in Malawi.

"Mnangagwa can't hold free and fair elections he cannot, there has never been a single case of a government that has come to power bullet but by holding credible elections", charged Moyo.

"The constitution of Zimbabwe requires people to come into power via the ballot and the people of Zimbabwe will decide".

From there the new Zimbabwean leader is scheduled to travel to Namibia on Monday and after that head east to Mozambique on Wednesday.

"The visit is being conducted in the interest of further strengthening existing excellent bilateral relations between Namibia and Zimbabwe and to consider new possible areas of cooperation", Aochamub said.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwean embassy in Mozambique also confirmed that Mnangagwa would be in Maputo on the 17th of January.
