MUGABE’S ALLIES IN PANIC OVER CHIWENGA’S THREATS | The statement by Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander Constantine Chiwenga has shaken Mugabe’s allies & officials in the ruling Zanu-PF party.
According to latest media reports, Zanu-PF spokesperson, Simon Khaya Moyo has refused to comment on Chiwenga’s statement. Political analysts have said Khaya Moyo is feeling the heat and he has chosen to distance himself from the explosive issue.
Moyo has indicated that Mugabe will comment on Chiwenga’s statement if he wishes to do so.
Chiwenga’s statement is perceived as a direct challenge to Mugabe’s decision to dismiss his long time right hand person Emmerson Mnangagwa.
In his statement, Chiwenga said the wanton dismissal of party members must be stopped with immediate effect.
General Chiwenga was once described as a politician in a uniform and one of the people responsible for Gukurahundi.
