This is according to the Zimbabwe Liberation War Veterans Association leader‚ Chris Mutsvangwa‚ who was speaking at a media briefing in Sandton on Wednesday.

“The vice president is safe…he is in a place where assassins can no longer reach him‚” he said‚ adding that Mnangagwa may soon be travelling to Johannesburg.

Mnangagwa’s 40-year-long relationship with President Robert Mugabe came to an end this week when Mnangagwa was unceremoniously axed‚ along with 29 other party members aligned to him.

He was leading a faction called Team Lacoste which was fighting another faction‚ Generation 40‚ spearheaded by the first lady‚ Grace Mugabe.

His removal makes it almost certain that Grace will be elevated to the position of president by Zanu PF come December.

“It is sad that such events could visit a man who has been with Mugabe since he was 18‚” Mutsvangwa said.

He also called Grace “clinically mad” adding that Mugabe had now outraged the entire nation with his further attempts to cling to power until his death.

“They know they are unpopular‚ they cannot win an election. That is why they are trying to seize power now. They are trampling on every aspect of the law.”

  • Hmmmmmm does he fear to be killed i thought he’s brave due to face his enemies ,,, just go to China and hide there they wll provide assylum for u Gware

  • If they had wanted to kill him they would have done it in no time. He’s finished, he’s finished all he can run away from are criminal charges.

  • Now whats the way forward,the problem yu are all power hungry.if we help yu chase Mugabe yu will be like him.its better he stays until elections & munangagwa is our own Bin Laden now..directing a war fare from under ground,!

  • Why do you keep on calling him vice President? Rakapera iro

  • Kkkkkkkkkkk ngwena inototyawo kufa nhy. All along I thought he is the one who determines who lives and who is eliminated.

  • uuuuummmmmm

  • Forced into exile? I’m not a Mnangagwa fan but political history teaches that leaders in exile usually become the legitimate leaders whilst those in ivory towers should be counting their numbered days. For the Mugabes it’s like that time paunoita munhikwi womwa mvura asi munhikwi woramba kudzingika then you ask yourself ndomwa mhamba here? They chased him out but the headache remains…

    So Mnangagwa’s claim to power is that he has been serving Mugabe since he was 18? What is in it for the country at large if not the same old violence and corruption? Wasn’t he a leading member of the organized gang that brutalized us for over 3 decades. Pedzeranai ikoko mhondi nembavha dzevanhu

  • When he sold out Nkomo in 1982 he was the darling of these Mutsvangwas ,his selling out of Nkomo made Nkomo to be expelled and sought after by Mugabe .He was also the chief architecture in the massacre of civilians in Matebeleland (Gukurahundi).He was very happy when Joice was implicated and subsequently dismissed from ZANU remember his speech in Chiredzi.He therefore deserves to rot in exile .
