Although an offended splinter group from within Zanu PF called the “Gang of Four” or G4 said to be comprising of ministers Oppah Muchinguri, Jonathan Moyo, Saviour Kasukuwere and Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao, is reportedly burning the midnight oil to decampaign and stop Mnangagwa from taking over, their political assault has come late, as the vice president has garnered not only the closet support of Mugabe himself, but one of the country’s most powerful men, Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) Commander, General Constantine Chiwenga, who is operating from behind the scenes in this big power equation, according to MyZimbabwe.

“Those who have good enough proximity to the presidency in government, can tell you that Mnangagwa deserves the high position. Former vice president Joice Mujuru, almost cost the party both in the 2008 and 2013 polls, as she was reportedly working with opposition forces, supported by the West to effect regime change in our land.
