Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was yesterday caught on camera praying with one eye open. With the previous history of poisoning and high level of suspicion within the ruling party “The Crocodile” as the VP is popularly known has had to be more vigilant. The photograph was taken at the burial of Cde Don Kwaedza Muvuti at the National Heroes Acre yesterday.
Mnagagwa was allegedly poisoned at a rally in Gwanda in August and was airlifted to South Africa for emergency treatment. There was rumor that he had been poisoned after consuming ice cream from Mugabe’s farm. This seemed to ruffle the Mugabes who came out guns blazing, defending their ice cream business.
Since his return from South Africa there has been increased tension with ZANU PF with Machiavellian manoeuvres to outwit each other. This has resulted in expulsions and a cabinet reshuffle that appears to have been targeted at pruning Mnangagwa’s allies.
